Baton Rouge Community College will partner with the Baton Rouge Police Department for an armed intruder training drill on the Mid City campus Friday that will begin at 8:45 a.m. in the parking garage and conclude around 10:30 a.m. in the Bonne Santé Health and Wellness Building.
A blank gun will be fired sporadically during the drill, and there will be a heavy first responder presence on campus.
BRCC’s faculty, staff and students are expected to follow procedures as if the drill were an actual emergency.
Individuals not directly affected by the drill will only be expected to test their emergency preparedness and can resume normal activities shortly afterward. People in the location where the scenario will take place will be involved in the drill for its entirety.
BRCC’s Crisis Management Team will use the training exercise to test its Emergency Mass Notification System, and it will disseminate alerts via text message, email and other outlets as deemed necessary throughout the drill.
The purpose of the drill is to ensure BRCC will be prepared if real emergencies arise on campus.
