1. Emergency Building Coordinator Training

Those who serve as Emergency Building Coordinators (EBCs) or Chief Emergency Building Coordinators (CEBCs) should attend this basic training covering their responsibilities before, during and after an emergency. This training will outline the importance of the EBC program, who is involved, and expectations of the EBC.

2. Emergency Response Training

As a follow up to the initial training, all Emergency Building Coordinators (EBCs) and Chief Emergency Building Coordinators( CEBCs) will review their duties and learn specific responsibilities in fire, tornado, power outage, gas leak, flooding, explosion, bomb threat and chemical spill emergencies.

 3Inclement Weather Training

Tornado warnings and severe weather are common Midwest events. An Emergency Building Coordinator (EBC) must know how to prepare, where to direct others for shelter, how to access weather communication, and even how to respond after building damage or injury. Emergency Building Coordinators will learn how to plan and equip themselves to be familiar with what to do in the event of a tornado warning.

 4. Campus Safety-Active Threat Incident Planning

Providing a safe and secure environment for the WSU community is a top priority. An Emergency Building Coordinator must know all options for responding to an active shooter situation. EBCs will also learn the responsibilities of their role in responding to both an active shooter alert and a live situation. 

 5. Emergency Response Plan Training

This training is for Chief Emergency Building Coordinators (CEBCs). CEBCs are required to develop and maintain Emergency Evacuation Plans for their building with the assistance and approval of Environmental Health & Safety. This session will guide CEBCs on how to complete the plan and communicate the components to other EBCs in their building.
