Responsibilities during an emergency
Do you know your responsibilities during an emergency evacuation? Whether you're an employee, manager, or a member of the facilities and maintenance group, we all have different responsibilities when it comes to emergencies. Check out this easy reference list to ensure you are prepared! For more information about emergency procedures, please view our Emergency Preparedness guide.
Make sure you are signed up for emergency messages
The SCCOE is augmenting its internal communications to ensure all employees can be contacted via text message in the event of an emergency. Please add your cell phone number to our database so you can receive information and instructions during an emergency situation. Our existing Human Resources database (QSS) doesn’t specifically identify phone numbers as cell or landlines, which is why each employee needs to add it to receive emergency notifications.
It only takes a minute, so don’t miss out on these crucial messages!
