The following information was released on 03/17/2020 to the TC3 Residence Life Community regarding adjustments to Campus Police response to calls for service in light of the current Covid-19 situation:

Covid-19 OPERATIONAL UPDATES
TOMPKINS CORTLAND COMMUNITY COLLEGE
CAMPUS POLICE
(607) 844-6511

The Tompkins Cortland Community College Campus Police Department would like to provide the following information to the campus residence life community regarding procedural adjustments in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Per recommendations being put forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and state and local health departments, we will be making the following procedural adjustments to help minimize potential exposure and spread of Covid-19 within our department and residence life community.

When calling 911 or our Campus Police office phone number, please be sure to provide a call back number whenever possible and monitor your phone. It is likely that one of our officers will contact you via telephone to assess your complaint and determine the need for an in-person response. For many minor reports, our officer may provide you with a report number, complete a report and conduct follow-up with you via telephone.

When an in-person response is called for, please be prepared to step outside of your apartment or residence hall to meet with the responding officer(s) in an open environment. This helps us comply with CDC recommendations for social distancing to help reduce the spread of Covid-19.

As always, the safety of our residence life campus community is a top priority and we will continue to respond accordingly to all emergency calls for service. As a reminder, our office is staffed by an officer 24/7/365.

We would like to thank the entire campus community for your cooperation and understanding during this challenging time.

Sincerely,
TCCC Campus Police

A friendly, but important, reminder from the TC3 Campus Police regarding fire safety: NEVER leave cooking food unattended - not even for a couple minutes! The attached pictures are the result of a student who decided to heat up some cooking oil while he went to take a shower. At least nobody got hurt. Let's have a safe semester!

Some good advice from our friends at the Ithaca Fire Department.

Halloween Safety!

Halloween is an exciting time of year for kids and adults...and it's not too far away! Plan now for the spooky night.

To help ensure a safe holiday, here are some tips from the Ithaca Fire Department and the American Academy of Pediatrics

Plan costumes that are bright and reflective. Make sure that shoes fit well and that costumes are short enough to prevent tripping or contact with flame.

Consider adding reflective tape or striping to costumes and Trick-or-Treat bags for greater visibility.

Because masks can limit or block eyesight, consider non-toxic makeup as a safer alternative.

When shopping for costumes and accessories, purchase those with a label clearly indicating they are flame resistant.

Have a flashlight with fresh batteries for all children and their escorts.

Teach children how to call 9-1-1 if they have an emergency or become lost.

Have Fun....Be Safe!

From our good friends at the Ithaca Fire Department. Thanks!

Dorm and Apartment Fire Safety

Whether it is your first place, or you have called it home for many years, most colleges, apartment owners and rental agencies have regulations and prohibited items that they don’t want being used in their buildings. The Property Maintenance Code of New York State section 403.2 states:

"… cooking shall not be permitted in any rooming unit or dormitory unit, and a cooking facility or appliance shall not be permitted to be present in the rooming unit or dormitory unit.”

Cooking and Heating are the leading causes of fires in our country. Following manufactures recommendations, room use policies and using common sense can go a long way towards fire safety.

Among many items listed as “Prohibited” in most college’s Residential Life Policies and apartment leases are:

• Electric fry pans, hot plates, hot pots.
• Extension cords, multi-plug adapters, non-surge protected power strips, dimmer switches.
• Halogen lamps, lava lamps, sun lamps, heat lamps.
• Electric blankets, space heaters.

They are listed as “Prohibited” for good reason. These items, if not used properly can, and have, caused fires in our area.
A few tips from the Ithaca Fire Department to keep you, your roommates and neighbors safe are:

• Be sure any appliances you buy or use are Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed. Don’t use cheap knock offs!
• Don’t use electric fry pans, hot plates, hot pots in your room.
• Extension cords are meant for temporary use. Don’t use them as a permanent means for getting electricity somewhere.
• Don’t use non-surge protected power strips, and don’t “daisy chain” one strip to another, to another.
• Any heating or heavy draw appliance should be plugged directly into an outlet, not a strip or extension cord.
• Be cautious when using electric blankets, space heaters, halogen lamps, lava lamps, etc. Always follow manufactures recommendations and don’t drape anything combustible over or near them.

Finally, when in doubt, check with your landlord, Resident Assistant or electrician about the use of an electrical appliance. While the device may be new, and UL listed, the building may have older wiring, that was never designed to handle large electrical loads, and could cause a fire.

Follow these simple rules to keep you, your roommates and neighbors safe. For more information and safety tips, contact us and follow the Ithaca Fire Department on Facebook.

Great work, Dryden Fire! For the folks that follow our (TC3 Campus Police) page, the men and women of the Dryden Fire Department are the volunteers that come to campus in response to our fire alarms. They are the volunteers who leave their jobs, their homes, their families, at all hours of the day and night to answer our calls. For that, we thank them, their families, and employers.

We are working with these fine folks to continue to educate our campus community about fire safety and prevention.

Hope you all at Neptune Hose Co #1 get a few hours, if not days, of some rest! Thanks for all you do.

A very busy few days for Dryden Volunteers Firefighters. We assisted Etna FD with a trailer fire on Sunday; a large serious house fire in the Village Monday morning; we assisted Varna FD with a garage fire Monday night and assisted Locke FD with a large house fire on Tuesday. Tonight was washing trucks, tools, gear, servicing all the equipment, saws, air packs, etc. and getting everything back in working order so we’re ready for the next call! 100% VOLUNTEER serving our community!!

***********NOTICE***********

With the forecast severe winter storm headed our way, Dryden Fire & Ambulance would like to offer the following tips.......,,

No unnecessary travel! Stay off the roads. More traffic impedes snow removal, emergency vehicles and puts everyone at risk.

Be prepared for power outages. Flaslights & battery powered lights. No candles or open flames.

Use extreme caution with alternate heat sources such as kerosene heaters and fireplaces.

Check on elderly or shut in neighbors and family; those with disabilities, home oxygen etc.

Use caution when shoveling snow especially those with medical conditions.

DO NOT call 911 for non emergency things like road conditions or weather reports!!!!
(Yes, it happens believe it or not!!😡)

DO NOT run portable power generators indoors or garages.
Carbon monoxide kills!!

Bring pets indoors.

Be prepared. Be safe.

We’re here if you need us!
