Weather Alerts

Michigan's seasons bring the potential for severe weather. Spring, summer, fall, and winter have the potential for severe storms and tornadoes. This is a good time to remind everyone where the tornado shelters are located for each of the classrooms and community buildings on our campus. Winter brings the potentional for extreme snow, cold, and ice as well.

When there is a threat or campus emergency—tornado, violence, hazardous material incident, college closure, or other emergency—we use the Baker Alert System to notify all current students, faculty, and staff on the campus.

Baker Alert is an automatic system that sends recorded emergency messages via cell phones, landline phones, e-mail, and text messages to all the contacts listed in the college's official directory (updated via the SOLAR System). Through Baker Alert, we are able to notify the entire community in about 20 minutes.

To be certain that you are notified in an emergency:

  • Review your information in the SOLAR System Directory to be sure it is up-to-date.
  • If you want to be notified by landline, cell phone, and/or text message, be sure the appropriate numbers are included in the Baker Alert database. 

To check and/or change your emergency contact information:

  • Log in to the SOLAR System.
  • Check your emergency contact number(s) and make any changes if necessary. You are the only person who can update this data. Please review it carefully.
Lost and Found

Lost and Found is located in the Campus Safety office.

Found items

Please bring any items found to the Campus Safety office so that they can be claimed by their owners.

Lost items

If you have lost an item, call us at (313) 425-3725 or come to the Campus Safety office. Generally, lost items are kept for six weeks. Valuable items will be held for one year.

To claim a lost item, you must give an accurate description of the item and provide a valid picture ID in order to claim it.

Please note: Do not send someone else to claim your lost item; we can only release a lost item to its owner.

Lockdown Procedure

Baker College of Allen Park may initiate a lockdown during a crisis or potential crisis situation. Notification may be made by use of the public address system, text, e-mail, personal notification, or by phone.

We will use the term “Code Baker” when there is an armed intruder on campus. If you hear the term “Code Baker,” faculty, staff, and students should initiate lockdown or other emergency procedures, including evacuation, lockdown, and as a last resort, confronting the threat (run, hide, fight).
