Building Marshals / Site Admin

Building Marshal

The Building Marshal is responsible for emergency management in their respective buildings. During an emergency they represent The College in all emergency response efforts in the absence of professional first responders.

Where possible and appropriate, an Assistant Building Marshal is assigned to aid the Building Marshal with his/her duties or act in their stead when absent. For the purposes of this handbook, any time the Building Marshal is referenced, the same instructions apply to the Assistant Building Marshal.

Building Marshals report safety and environmental problems to the Emergency Response and Environmental Health & Safety Managers. CERT members working in a particular building report to the Building Marshal. Building Marshals assign CERT members to help them with the orderly evacuation of their building or whatever is required by the response plan at that time.

Communication is coordinated by the Building Marshal or designee. During an emergency, the college’s Emergency Response Manager will be in direct contact with the Building Marshal in order to exchange emergency related information.

Like the other emergency response groups and organizations, the Building Marshal program follows the Incident Command System (ICS) with the Building Marshal taking the position of Incident Commander.

Site Administrators

The College President and Cabinet appoint individuals to be Site Administrators, and for most campuses, Assistant Site Administrators, at each campus to be the voice of the Administration during an emergency or event where direct leadership is required. Since the President and Cabinet members have offices on the Redwood Taylorsville campus, no Site Administrators are required.

The College also uses the Campus Emergency Response Team (CERT) program to assist individuals on campus during an emergency. Like the other emergency response groups and organizations, the Site Administrator program follows the Incident Command System (ICS). Site Administrators are encouraged to complete the National Incident Command System (NIMS) training for a better comprehension of the ICS.

During an emergency, communication between the College’s Emergency Operations Center and each campus is coordinated by the Site Administrator, Assistant Site Administrator, Building Marshal or designee. In order to expedite the exchange of information during an emergency, the Emergency Response Manager will communicate directly with the Site Administrator or Assistant Site Administrator. If the Site or Assistant Administrator is unavailable; communication will be with the Building Marshal.

The Site Administrator program plays a pivotal part in the direction and control of the College’s campuses before, during and after an emergency or disaster.
