Emergency Preparedness


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 as possible.

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 good education program and the godly environment. The small campus allows teachers to get to know the students individually and develop personal relationships with them. I love CCC! I'm surrounded by so many people who care for me personally, not only in my academics, but also in my spiritual life. I am vice president of my class and recently got nominated for vice president of my Greek. Being a class officer, I have a chance to help make an impact and get to help decide what the focus of our class is going to be. It has been exciting to be involved in planning our activities and meetings and to see God work in the lives of my classmates throughout the year and a half I've been here. In addition to my elected responsibilities, I am a student worker and a devotion leader (DL) for my unit. Working for Coach Whitaker and Coach Champion has been a blast! The tasks Coach Whitaker has given me have broadened my experiences, while being a DL has been a good experience for me to learn how to be a spiritual leader. I have learned a lot about myself and have been able to grow and be encouraged by my responsibilities.
