The College will conduct a fire/evacuation drill on the East Peoria Campus on Tues., May 24 at approximately 3:30 pm. The drill will begin upon the activation of the emergency alarms, lights, strobes, and public address systems. This drill will include the Main Academic Building (including Technology Center, Career Center, and Library/Administration Building), the AIT Building, Performing Arts Center, and Campus Housing.
East Peoria Fire Department personnel will be on site to assist Campus Police and Facility Services with the drill. Everyone will be expected to evacuate the buildings during the drill and remain outside until an “all-clear” announcement is made.
Emergency evacuation instructions and maps are posted throughout the campus. Evacuation procedures also are included in the Emergency Response Guide online and in the printed version of the guide located in campus offices and classrooms.
