Building Marshal Program
Salt Lake Community College Building Marshal Program is used to train
selected College personnel for emergency operations in each building.
This program is critical to overall achievement of emergency
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 their activities. Each of these building marshals has a team of 2-10 members who have completed Campus Emergency Response training and who have been assigned specific tasks and have been given supplies to carry out their tasks. Each building marshal has a larger cache of supplies to carry out emergency operations and to resupply their 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) training bi-annually. The training is composed of the 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
Once individuals are trained, they become part of the CERT team for the building they work in. Then, in the event of a disaster, they are 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. About once a year, we ask CERT team members to participate in a training meeting or drill. We also encourage additional training such as CPR, AED and first aid.
