Weekly Safety Tips


Three consecutive governors have ordered increasing levels of preparedness and encouraged and expected a culture of preparedness in the Commonwealth of Virginia (COV) workforce. The culture is supposed to encompass more than the deployed security staff. That is to say, it is not just up to the police, and any employees whose primary job descriptions designate their security and safety responsibilities. So the expectation of all of us as employees and members of the college community of the COV is that we are ready and during an emergency, we will respond with initiative and leadership to protect the students, faculty, staff, and property of the COV.

Not only must this institution be prepared, but students, faculty, and staff must be prepared. You must be mentally preparedYou must be an engaged and active learner.
