Campus Safety Awareness Month Continues!

FCC Public Safety and the Mid-Atlantic Center for Emergency Management teams are committed to public safety and YOUR safety. It only takes 3-5 minutes for someone to bleed out from a traumatic injury and only one minute for you to help. The potentially life-saving video below details what you can do to stop traumatic bleeding. Stop the Bleed kits are located in the AED cabinets in each building on campus.

Stop the Bleed • Save a Life

If You See Something, Say Something

Practicing situational awareness, being fully aware of your surroundings, the people in it, and your situation, is vital for preventing and responding to an immediate threat or hazard. If you see something, say something!
