On Monday, Oct. 14, Tusculum College will be hosting a simulated disaster scenario at the Greeneville campus that will involve numerous emergency response providers including Tusculum Campus Safety, Greeneville City Police, Greene County Sheriff’s Department, EMS, Wings, Laughlin Memorial Hospital, Tusculum Fire Department, Greeneville Fire Department, WSCC Police Academy and the Emergency Management Agency. This scenario will stage a mock emergency and is designed to improve the preparedness for the Tusculum College community and surrounding emergency response personnel. This will help prepare responders in the event of a real emergency.
This event will run throughout most of the day on Monday, Oct. 14. We are looking for numerous volunteers to participate in our drill from our faculty, staff and students. If you are willing to participate in this scenario from the hours of 8 a.m. until approximately 4 p.m., please contact Dr. Jonita Ashley-Pauley in the Office of Student Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org, or x5820.
If you are not volunteering or do not have a role directly in responding to or managing the event, we are asking faculty and staff to stay in their normal work areas during that day. Agencies involved will be treating the scenario as though it were a real event, your arrival to the scene of the event could result in you being involuntarily delayed while agencies play out the incident.
As the date approaches, the Tusculum community will be notified with increasing frequency of the event to ensure everyone is aware. Thank you for your cooperation.
