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.
The reason I chose to come to CCC was that it is a Christian college that offered an accredited education that was grounded in a Biblical foundation. It is located on a beautiful campus and is full of teachers and faculty who really care and want to get to know you and let you know they care about more than just your grades in their class. The student body desires to glorify God in how they live. When I graduate, I hope to take away many strong friendships and a more mature view of myself and my God based upon my experience at CCC.
