Emergency Response Lockdown Training Exercise to Take Place March 23

Posted March 1, 2017

Missouri Valley College, the Marshall Police Department and local emergency responders will conduct an emergency response lockdown training exercise on the MVC campus on Thursday, March 23 from approximately 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.

During this training exercise, the campus alert system sirens will sound followed by instructions for all those on the MVC campus. Text alert messages will be sent out to those who have signed up to receive them. Anyone on campus is asked to follow the instructions of the email and text alerts and to listen to the campus alert system which, at the end of the exercise, will sound with “Attention! All warnings for the Missouri Valley College campus have now expired,” followed by Westminster Chimes.

In addition to Missouri Valley College and the Marshall Police Department, the Saline County Sheriff’s Department, Marshall Fire Department, Saline County Ambulance, and Fitzgibbon Hospital will take part in this exercise. This exercise is intended to help prepare our community and local emergency responders for situations that could occur on the MVC campus. Students, faculty, staff and visitors to campus are reminded to follow all instructions given by emergency responders and MVC administrators as though this were a real-life emergency.

In the event that an actual emergency occurs during the drill, all alert systems will notify the campus.

Anyone who would like to register to receive MVC campus emergency alerts via text message may do so at https://www.getrave.com/login/moval.
