Please take a few moments to review important safety information available on the Roane State website.
The BeSafe website includes prevention tips and forms for reporting sexual assault and other incidents.
The Police Department website includes numerous resources, including guidance on how to develop a personal protection plan.
These videos are short and contain helpful information on active shooter scenarios.
As students, you are one of the college’s best resources to keep the campus safe. If you hear or see something suspicious, whether in person or on social media, PLEASE report it.
Information is one our best defenses, and chances are you, as a student, may be the first to witness suspicious activity or behavior.
Reporting your suspicion to authorities can be tough. It’s tempting to talk yourself out of it, to explain away what you saw or heard. Please, do not hesitate to report suspicious activity. You are not getting anyone in trouble. Roane State police and local law enforcement will treat your report fairly and professionally.
If it seems suspicious to you, then it’s suspicious. If you SEE something, please SAY something.
There is no better expert on your personal safety than you. Please take time to develop your personal protection plan. Know where exits are from the buildings where you take classes. Be mindful of your surroundings.
Communication is critical during a campus emergency. Sign up now for Roane State RaiderAlert, our emergency text messaging service.
Also, if the Roane State website were to crash during an emergency, the college would continue to post information on its official twitter account @roanestate) and official Facebook page (facebook.com/roanestate). Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook to stay informed.
