The following information indicates current policies and procedures associated with fire safety and prevention.
- All campus buildings have a fire monitoring (which includes smoke detectors and sensors) and fire alarm system. The system is monitored at the
security building 24/7.
- All dorm rooms have smoke detectors which are monitored by the fire alarm system.
- Each semester there is a fire alarm drill conducted for all of the dorms. Resident students go to a pre-determined location while all the dorm rooms are
checked by the Resident Director and Security staff. A log is then completed for each dorm fire drill.
- Merritt's and Steele Halls, men's dormitories, have posted fire evacuation routes on the floors. Also there are several fire safety tips posted with the
evacuation routes. Units in the women's dormitories, Paden Hall and Emmons, have doors that exit immediately outside.
- Merritt's and Steele Halls have fire emergency doors that close automatically when the fire alarm goes off.
- There are fire extinguishers located throughout the campus buildings. They are checked on a monthly basis by Security staff and serviced at least annually.
If they have been discharged or not properly charged they are then replaced.
- Once a year all the fire alarms and smoke detectors are checked and serviced by a licensed contractor.
- Once a year the fire water flow system is checked and serviced by a licensed outside contractor.
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!
