Fire Protection

  • The Romeoville Campus is equipped with modern life-safety systems, including a building-wide sprinkler system; however, that does not necessarily eliminate the possibility of a fire occurring.
  • Smoke detectors are located in each of the four (4) computer labs, the four (4) resource centers, the mechanical room, and the student lounge.
  • Heat detectors are located in each of the four (4) restrooms, the biology lab, the chemistry lab, the biology/chemistry preparation room, and room 24 storage closet.
  • Romeoville Campus is also equipped with two ceiling duct detectors which are located in the student lounge (room 10) and the mechanical room. If smoke is detected, the ventilation will be shut down and the fire alarm system will be activated.
  • The campus will have posted evacuation plans, illuminated exit signs, emergency lights, and any necessary special fire safety equipment.
  • The Romeoville Campus facility has a building-wide sprinkler system. It is equipped with a Simplex 4020 fire alarm control system with smoke and heat detectors and manual pull devices.
  • Audible and visual signaling devices are located in corridors and common areas. Additionally, there are tamper and flow switches to detect problems with the sprinkler system, as well as water flow as a result of a sprinkler discharge.
  • The fire alarm system is directly connected to Orland Central Dispatch Station (OCDS). The system is monitored 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. The JJC Campus Police Department is notified via a computer generated alarm when the fire alarm system is activated at Romeoville Campus.
  • When the fire alarm system is triggered, audible and visual signaling devices will activate. This signals the report of an emergency in the building. Everyone must consider the ringing of any fire alarm as a bona fide emergency and react accordingly. Upon the sounding of the fire alarm, the building must be evacuated as orderly and rapidly as possible.
  • A Simplex fire alarm enunciator panel is located just inside the Romeoville Campus main entrance with indicators showing from where in the building the alarm is originating.
  • An exterior knox box is located outside the main entrance. A key to the main entrance and a key to the circuit breaker panels are located in the lockbox. The RFD has a key to open the exterior knox box if access to the building is necessary when staff is not present.

  • Mechanical room

Burglar Alarm System

The burglar alarm system is monitored by Emergency 24 and provides direct notification to the Romeoville Police Department (RPD) when the alarm is activated. Motion detectors are hooked into the alarm system, and if motion is detected after the alarm is set, the RPD will be notified. The JJC Campus Police Department will be notified via a computer generated alarm when the burglar alarm system is activated at Romeoville Campus.

Public Address System

The public address system is used to convey messages in case of tornado watches and warnings, building evacuations, "All Clear" notices, as well as other important messages regarding matters that must be immediately conveyed to the entire campus.
