The ability to deal with any incident depends on good communication. The College is committed to informing the community of an emergency, disaster or potential disaster immediately upon determining the nature of the emergency. It is important, however, for you to take an active role in staying informed.

Using the College's emergency notification systems, the Emergency Management Team will immediately notify the campus community of a confirmed emergency or dangerous situation that presents an immediate threat to the health or safety of the community.
