St. Louis Community College will add emergency preparedness training to its repertoire. The college was recently selected as one of several two-year institutions to take place in the national program known as 3CP2. The goal of this program is to train a minimum of 500,000 citizens throughout the United States’ community colleges with the skills needed to save lives and prevent injuries in the event of a disaster. Essentially, those participating in the training course would provide help before first responders would arrive. Robert Stewart, the acting district chief of police and director of emergency preparedness for STLCC, and Paul Banta, the campus police chief at STLCC-Meramec will lead the training. The program will be offered through the STLCC Workforce Solutions Group’s continuing education division.
