STRENGTHEN PRIDE AND INVOLVEMENT
Initiative: Continue to improve environmental safety by enhancing the emergency phone system and campus lighting.
Achievements of the past year:
- During this past year we purchased and changed out all the emergency phone light globes to a blue glass globe to distinguish them from other lights on campus. Additionally these glass globes are less susceptible to fading other weather induced deteriorations. We have purchased and begun installation of 10 new modern emergency phone systems at locations that did not have them. The installation should be complete within a month.
- We have a weekly lighting patrol that occurs Monday night to identify and re-lamp any lights or light circuit that is burned out.
- We have identified locations where future lights will be installed to enhance safety around campus.
Goals for the next year:
In our efforts to continue to improve in this area any new parking lots or construction will consider whether or not a phone installation is necessary. We will continue to monitor and re-lamp weekly.
Constraints to full implementation of this initiative:
