A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is the uniform classroom response to any incident. MNTC has adopted the Standard Respond Protocol (SRP) for most emergency situations. Historically, schools have taken this scenario-based approach to respond to hazards and threats.
Evacuate is always followed by a location, and is used to move students and staff from one location to a different location in or out of the building.
Lockout is followed by the Directive: "Secure the Perimeter" and is the protocol used to safeguard students and staff within the building.
Lockdown is followed by "Locks, Lights, Out of Sight" and is the protocol used to secure individual rooms and keep students quiet and in place.
Shelter is always followed by a type and a method and is the protocol for group and self protection.
In an Emergency
When to dial 911:
Always call 911 if the situation is life-threatening. To dial 911 on an internal business line, you must dial 9 first, then 911.
When to dial MNTC First Responder Team (Ext. 5555):
Always call Ext. 5555 in every emergency situation. If the situation is life-threatening, contact 911 first. If the situation occurs outside of normal campus hours, contact the campus coordinator on duty.
Emergency Preparedeness Drills
In an effort to ensure Moore Norman Technology Center is prepared for emergency situations, the safety response team is committed to educating the campus community about what to do in an emergency. Drills of any sort — fire, tornado, lockdown, intruder, earthquake, etc. — are believed to save lives because they reduce the panic in an actual emergency.
During the school year, we will conduct a maximum of 10 safety drills as required by the Oklahoma Department of Education.
