Agenda #8

Topic:Alarm System for Evacuations
Presenter:
Summary of Agenda Item:Ron Waddy discussed having an alarm system on campus to inform the campus community about emergency situations. He also discussed having sirens around campus to let people know to either evacuate or lock doors.

Another concern Ron had was the exposed A, B, C units. The windows do not have blinds and this causes faculty who use these room to feel unsafe, especially with all the gang problems in this area. Damon Felice will take a look at this.
