Building Leader training continues on Stockton campus
A plan to make everyone in the campus community safer is gaining traction.
About 75 of the 200 building leaders on University of the Pacific's Stockton campus have been trained in the Building Leader Crisis Management Plan, or "Tiger Plan." The remaining expected to be trained in the next few weeks.
"The plan helps the community prepare for any type of critical incident," according to the introduction to the plan. "It illustrates how each department should prepare for evacuations and how to protect the University's assets during business hours and when closed for official business."
Building leader responsibilities - from participating in regular training to knowing what to do during an evacuation of a building or other crisis - is provide in the plan. It also provides emergency numbers, what to do in certain emergency situations, and a list of items for a basic emergency supply kit. The names of building leaders will be posted in each building and each building leader will don a bright yellow vest during an emergency.
"The more knowledge each of us has the more confidence we have to protect ourselves and to help our community become more aware on how to respond during a critical period," the plan introduction continued.
Prepared by Pacific's Department of Public Safety, Risk Management, and Housing and Greek Life, the training is being offered by Pacific Alert Team, the university's crisis management organization.
