Anaheim Campus Conducts Emergency Response Drills: 4/26 and 4/28


On Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at 9:10 a.m. and again on Thursday, April 28 at 7:40 p.m., the NOCCCD Anaheim Campus will conduct active shooter response drills.  The drills are intended to prepare the campus community for such an event and test the campus’ lockdown and emergency communications capabilities.


At 9:10 a.m. on 4/26 and 7:40 p.m. on 4/28, faculty and staff will be asked to lockdown and view an educational video on active-shooter situations, and then discuss preparation methods in their classrooms and offices.  Twenty minutes later, a campus broadcast will announce to shelter-in-place.  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security supports the Run-Hide-Fight response plan. Discuss with your classroom or office co-workers how you would prepare for these three options in your campus location.


A test of the communication system will take place; staff and faculty will receive text messages, voicemails and e-mails. To ensure you receive alerts during the drill, log into MyGateway to review and update your contact information.  More directions are located here: NOCCCD Emergency Notifications.


The shelter-in-place drill should last approximately 10 minutes after which an announcement that the drill has concluded will be made by radio and telephone broadcast system.  After the drill, we encourage all participants to talk about the experience and share your feedback.   Faculty and staff are encouraged to fill out the post-drill survey and return it to the Admissions and Registration Office located at the Anaheim Campus, second floor.


While a real threat may be much different than a drill, the key to minimizing the negative impact of an active-shooter situation is preparing and knowing how to respond.  Employees and students are encouraged to view emergency preparedness information in MyGateway and actively participate in the drills on April 26 and April 28.


Any questions regarding the drill can be directed to the Anaheim Campus Dean at 714.808.4660.

Tell Us Your Thoughts About SCE's Name: Fill Out Our Survey

We want to know….what do you think about our name, NOCCCD School of Continuing Education?

Go to the Name Exploration Survey and fill out the survey to help us make an important decision regarding our name, the NOCCCD School of Continuing Education.

As you know, SCE’s purpose is to offer free and accessible educational opportunities to everyone throughout the North Orange County community.  Given the variety of programs we offer, we want to be sure the name of our institution - the School of Continuing Education - still accurately defines and unites us.

Through this process, we may decide our current name still fits us, but we are open to calling ourselves something different too.  We’d like your help in making this important decision that will define us for years to come.

The survey should take approximately eight minutes to complete and will be available through Friday, April 29, 2016. Thank you in advance for your time and feedback!
