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 found CCC online when I did a web search for a small, Christian college with Air Force ROTC. CCC was one of the very few in the nation that fell under all three of these qualifications. Once I had found the college and started looking at it more closely, I found that many people I knew had friends or family here. Life at the college is amazing. It is small enough to get to know everyone which is exactly what I wanted. I pay for some of my bill by working on campus. My job is to help with breakfast and lunch preparation. Being an ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corp) student makes my life a little more difficult than normal; however, our classes are the best. Over all, my favorite thing about CCC is the mission opportunities that are available to students. Almost every day students participate in some sort of mission. It's a blast and you're working for the Lord!
