Lockdown drill held at SUNY Sullivan

LOCH SHELDRAKE – An emergency lockdown drill was held on campus at SUNY Sullivan Thursday with State Police, the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office, Fallsburg Police and the SUNY Sullivan Office of Public Safety participating.

At about 10 a.m., an announcement went out over the college’s public address system instructing those on campus to seek shelter in a locked room or office. Once the halls were clear of students, faculty and staff, an email and text alert was sent out announcing that the lockdown was a drill, but requesting that everyone remain locked down until an all-clear message was sent.

Lockdown drills are held annually at the college to test its public address and text alert systems, as well as to reinforce proper procedures in the event of an actual emergency lockdown.

College President Jay Quaintance said he appreciates “the fact that our law enforcement partners are always ready to help us assure the safety of our students, faculty and staff.”
