Facilitator's Toolbox

We appreciate the dedication of our members who volunteer as facilitators to conduct classes in subjects of their interests and those who host classes conducted by non-member facilitators. To make your job easier, we have put together tools that will assist in your functions.

Facilitator Guides

Some information to help you get started!

Campus Safety and Emergency Information
The Mesa Community College Police page offers guides to explain how to handle different types of emergencies, from medical emergencies to various types of crimes. There is even a video from Ohio State University which explains what to do in case of an active shooter. It is especially handy to note the phone numbers of the College Police for each campus and keep them in your cell phone's address book in case you need them. Remember that 911 is for all violent crimes and life-threatening emergencies!
