Campus Safety Month 2018

“What can we do to keep our schools safe?” The answers are varied, but the one thing that remains constant is the need to be prepared for the unexpected.

That is what Pensacola State College’s second annual Campus Safety Month was all about.

Beginning March 1 with a Safety Month Kickoff and Law Enforcement Panel, daily events followed including workshops, trainings, discussions and demonstrations designed to foster safety awareness. A “Safety Day” was held on each campus with representatives from local police and fire departments, the American Red Cross, Escambia County Emergency Management Agency, the Arrive Alive Tour Drunk & Distracted Driving Simulator, and Lakeview Center’s SHAPE (Substance-abuse, HIV Assessment & Prevention Education) on hand.  Free food, T-shirts and other giveaways were a big hit as well.
