To Report Non-Emergency Safety Issues or Suspicious Behavior/Activity
Call CBC Campus Security, or create an incident report online at our ASaferCBC website. This website allows you to communicate with College officials about incidents or behaviors that affect the safety and security of CBC. Issues such as suspicious behavior, safety concerns, theft, and substance abuse are serious matters that if not reported, may lead to more critical safety concerns. ASaferCBC is a secure way to report these issues, and the choice is yours to remain anonymous or to reveal your identity.
The CBC Emergency Notification System (ENS) sends text messages and/or emails in the case of an emergency, such as a campus lockdown, evacuation, or if the campus is closed due to inclement weather. All currently enrolled student email addresses (email@example.com) are auto-subscribed, but students are encouraged to sign up to receive notifications on their cell phones and/or personal email addresses as well. Register at columbiabasin.edu/ens.
No matter where you are on campus, the basic steps of shelter in place will generally remain the same:
At the beginning of each quarter, take the time to locate the nearest exits in each of your classrooms and buildings. In the event of an emergency evacuation:
How you respond to an armed intruder will be determined by the specific circumstances of the encounter. If you hear what sounds like gunshots or popping, immediately assume they are gunshots and don’t investigate. Try to remain calm and focused. Make sure you are safe and secure in your classroom or building, or decide if it is best to escape to safer, more secure area. As soon as you are in a safe place, call 911. If you decide it is best to flee during an armed intruder situation, make sure you have an escape route and plan; move quickly, keep your hands visible, and follow the instructions of police officers and campus administrators. For more detailed guidance relating to various situations, please read the Armed Intruder Response web page. “Shots Fired on Campus,” a video with guidance for surviving an active shooter situation, is shown several times throughout the year and is always followed by a discussion session with a local police officer. For more information, call the Office of the Sr. Vice President for Administration at 509-542-5546.
Additional information about emergency preparedness and response at CBC is available by calling the Office of the Sr. Vice President for Administration at 509-542-5546 or from a campus phone at 2346. Please also view the Classroom Emergency Preparedness and Response Information Poster.
