The motto of the Environmental, Health and Safety Committee (EHSC) at Clearwater Christian College could be "Fundamental principles played out in
specific situations." Due to the nature of an unexpected emergency, specific events cannot be foreseen, but the fundamental principles established by
CCC apply in each emergency situation.
In the event of weather emergencies such as hurricanes or flooding, CCC has specific evacuation and protection programs designed with you in mind. The
Chief of Security monitors inclement weather and potential severe storm warnings 24/7 in order to stay abreast of current weather conditions and
take any action necessary. If a weather emergency does not merit evacuation according to governmental agencies, no evacuation will be ordered, but you
will remain safe in your dorm. Should we decide to evacuate campus, an order will be announced to the student body publically and on the landing page of
the CCC website. If internet connection to the main website is lost, information will be posted on an alternate, remote website that is directly linked
to the main page. All decisions to evacuate campus are made with student safety in mind; information for a safe return will be made available as soon
In the event of a non-weather related emergency, the college has developed a First Alert text message warning system. Students, staff, and faculty will be
notified immediately of the situation and will be given direction on how to respond. While it is difficult to plan against the irrational, we have taken
the necessary steps to put warning systems, reliable security, and preventative measures into place.
I chose CCC because of the Christian environment. I also really liked that CCC is a smaller school. I feel like I do not get lost in a crowd here, but instead I have the chance to really get to know people and form relationships. As a transfer student from another Christian college, I see that CCC is different. The biggest difference is the professors. At my other school I did not get to know the professors, but here at CCC, the professors are always there for you when you need them and they really make an effort to get to know you. As a member of Joy Club, a service organization at CCC, I am able to go and spend some time with kids who just need someone to hang out with them, and it is amazing. I love the opportunity to go and just spread the love that God has given me to these kids.
