Building Marshal Program
The SLCC Building Marshal Program trains select College employees for emergency operations in each building. The program is critical to emergency preparedness.
Each building has at least one building marshal with one or more designated alternates. One trained building marshal will be in each building during all regular hours of occupancy, if possible. Larger buildings may have multiple building marshals that coordinate activities.
Each building marshal has a team of 2-10 members who have completed Campus Emergency Response training and who are assigned tasks and given supplies to carry out their tasks, and to resupply team members. Each campus has a cache of emergency equipment and supplies to aid in the emergency management effort.
SLCC offers Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) bi-annually. The training is comprised of FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) curriculum, including:
- Disaster Preparedness
- Disaster Fire Suppression
- Disaster Medical Operation
- Light Search and Rescue
- Disaster Psychology
- Team Organization
- Terrorism and CERT
CERT-trained employees become part of the CERT team for their building. In a disaster, they’re activated to work with their team under the direction of the building marshal and SLCC Emergency Operations. Some building marshals hold periodic, short meetings for their teams; others do not. CERT team members annually participate in a training meeting or drill. We also encourage additional training such as CPR, AED and first aid.
