On Tuesday, Sept. 1, the College will conduct an emergency drill on campus with members of the Schenectady police and fire departments.

The drill is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude by noon. It will take place primarily in the north end of the first floor of the Science and Engineering Center and the first floor and basement of the F.W. Olin Center.

Access to those areas will be restricted to allow emergency personnel to conduct the exercise.

The purpose of the drill is to evaluate the College’s emergency preparedness and the response of area emergency organizations to a campus calamity.

Most students and faculty are on summer break and will not be on campus. Classes for the fall term begin Wednesday, Sept. 9.
