Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Guide

A major emergency may occur any time of the day, with little or no warning.  Corban's emergency response guidebook was designed to provide a quick reference to students and employees.

Though the guidebook does not cover every conceivable situation, please review it periodically to keep yourself informed and prepared. The guidebook covers the following topics:

  • Emergency Contacts & Notifications
  • Medical Emergency
  • Bomb Threat
  • Suspicious Packages
  • Fire
  • Major Floods
  • Major Earthquake
  • Power Failure
  • Evacuating Persons With Disabilities
  • Active Shooter
