Reminder: campus-wide fire alarm drills planned for tomorrow

November 8, 2018

Campus Police and Facilities will be conducting fire alarm drills of all GRCC Campus buildings on Friday, November 9, 2018, starting at 9 a.m. with the Main / Cook Building. The M-TEC Campus will also conduct a fire alarm drill later in the day.

Each Campus building fire alarm will be activated separately with all students, staff, and visitors temporarily evacuated until the buildings are cleared. Once cleared, classes and operations will resume as normal.

The only building that will NOT be conducting a fire alarm on November 9, 2018, is the Early Childhood Preschool; this building already conducts monthly fire alarm drills.
