The Kodiak College Safety Committee is responsible for addressing a variety of safety issues on the Kodiak campus. Safety information is delivered to students, staff and faculty through a variety of methods online and from safety personnel from the Anchorage campus. Course instructors in every class address general safety instruction at the beginning of each semester. Additionally, as safety issues arise during the semester, students, staff and faculty are informed via email, word-of-mouth, electronic reader board announcements, and fliers distributed throughout campus. Faculty and staff receive general safety information upon initial hire and receive informational updates throughout the academic year during staff and faculty meetings. Additionally, all faculty and staff of Kodiak College are given a copy of the Kodiak College Emergency Response Plan and provided with updates as necessary.
At Kodiak College, the College Director or designee should be contacted at the first indication of an emergency. The College Director may be notified by calling 486-1220 or visiting the Director's Office in Room 104 of the Benny Benson Building.
In the evening hours, the Maintenance Technician should be notified. The Maintenance Technician may be notified by calling 512-7335 or visiting the Facilities Services Office in Room 134 of the Technology Center.
Depending on the nature of the emergency, it may be necessary to contact 911 (e.g. Kodiak Police Department or Fire Department) first and then contact the College Director or designee. It is important to contact the College Director or designee because local emergency responders may not notify the College Director or designee that they are responding to an emergency on campus.
