September is recognized as National Preparedness Month, which serves as a reminder that we must all take action to prepare now and throughout the year, for various types of emergencies.
Get Ready – Take Action is Shoreline Community College’s All-Hazards Emergency Response Training and is available online on CANVAS.
Don’t Delay! Having the training online makes the class available and convenient. Those unfamiliar with Canvas and how to find a class in the system can go to Canvas for instructions on how to log in.
The training is broken up into learning modules, to be completed one at a time, in order. Completing all the training should take approximately 90 minutes. The training can be started and stopped to be completed later. After completing a module, you may log off and your work will be saved.
At completion, an optional survey is available to provide feedback and help improve the learning experience. Shoreline Community College’s goal is to have all employees complete the required training. In the event of a practice drill or emergency on campus, you are better informed on how to respond.
Receiving emergency communication is also an important factor for staying informed. Go to: www.shoreline.edu/Connect to log into RAVE Alert to subscribe to emergency alerts and weather closure warnings.
