College Security


FCC places a high priority on maintaining a safe environment for all students, staff, faculty, and guests. College Security staff routinely patrol our campus and provide services including evening accompaniment to vehicles, assistance to ill or injured persons, and help with lost property. FCC College Security works closely with local first responders to respond to emergencies and manage criminal incidents.  
 
The College Security staff does not have arrest powers, but works cooperatively with the Frederick City Police Department. These local authorities investigate and prosecute violations of traffic and criminal laws on campus.
 
If you are a frequent visitor to our campus, we suggest that you enter the College Security phone number (301.846.2453) into the directory of your cell phone. This will allow you to quickly and conveniently contact College Security if services are required.

Medical Emergencies


If a student or staff member is unconscious and/or appears to need immediate attention, call 911. Then call College Security (x4444 or x2453 on any campus phone.) If you activate voice mail, immediately dial "0" which will transfer you to their cell phone.

Give the student or staff member's name and location, and provide information as requested.

Maintenance staff will direct the ambulance directly to the location of the incident when needed.

NOTE: No matter how insignificant an accident or injury may seem, it must be reported to College Security.

 
Unusual Behavior


If you can do so safely, remain with the individual.

Contact College Security (x4444 or x2453 at any campus phone.)

If the student appears to be violent or the situation is serious, in addition to the above, call 911. Your personal safety is your top priority.

Fire


If you discover a fire or see smoke, immediately sound the fire alarm. Once you've left the building, from a cell phone, notify College Security at 301.846.2453. 

The College Security staff will inspect the area. If they determine it is an emergency, they will call 911. The following information should be given:

Building Evacuation


Everyone must exit the building during fires or drills. Be sure to shut off open flame devices in laboratories. The fire alarm will sound continuously until the building is evacuated.

Move out in an orderly manner. Close interior doors. Do not run,

If you are able, help others who have physical handicaps.

If smoke has filled the hallways, crawl on your hands and knees.

Once outside, move away from the building to a designated evacuation area.

Staff must check to determine if every student has left the building. Whenever practical, faculty should take class rolls with them
