Howard D. McMillan Middle School Crisis Management
Code Red/ Code Yellow EMERGENCY PROCEDURES FOR CODE RED AND CODE YELLOW ARE AS FOLLOWS: In the case of emergency, CODE RED or CODE YELLOW will be announced via the PA system. A Code Red will only be used if there is imminent danger INSIDE our building. A Code Yellow will only be used if there is imminent danger OUTSIDE our building in the community.
Code Red/Yellow Procedures The procedures for both codes are almost identical with only a few variations. When you hear either one of these messages you are to carry out the following procedures: Teachers are to lock all exit doors to their rooms, and teachers with windows in the Annex or portables are to close all windows and close exterior shutters. Teachers are to keep ALL their students in the classroom. For a Code Red, move students to a safe area away from windows and doors; for a Code Yellow, students can remain at their desk.
Procedures Once this announcement has been made: DO NOT CHANGE CLASSES. All bells MUST be ignored including the fire alarm. Shutdown all computers except for the teachers station. Teachers computer should have e-mail open to facilitate communication between staff and administration ONLY! All TVs and radios must be turned off. All student cell phones must be off. PE teachers are to reassemble all their classes and go to: *Code Red = the covered shed at McMillan Park and await instructions. KEEP 2-WAY RADIO TURNED ON AND WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES. *Code Yellow = report to the auditorium.
