Because of the number of University buildings and their uniqueness in structure, Building Coordinators are assigned to each building. Building Coordinators are considered the direct person of contact for each building. Building Coordinators are responsible for alerting building occupants during an emergency or evacuation. They are also responsible for conducting a personnel role call once evacuation or shelter-in-place assembly has taken place. This procedure is done to assist the Emergency Management Team in accounting for all building occupants.
Each University building must have a Building Emergency Plan (BEP) that describes procedures for building occupants to follow in the event of an emergency. The Building Coordinator develops the BEP and submits it to the Senior Vice President for Administration/CFO (Incident Commander) for review and distribution to the Fire and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department.
As a member of the Alcorn Community, you should also be familiar with the Emergency Management Plan. This plan describes the procedures to follow in a variety of emergencies. Please print the Emergency Management Plan for your personal Records. If you have any questions about the EMP, contact the Fire Chief at (601)877-6196.
All Building Coordinators are responsible for completing the Building Emergency Management Plan form online, with the assistance of the Fire Chief.
