Emergency Procedures

The manner in which the college communicates with students, faculty and staff will depend upon the nature of the crisis/emergency. In most cases, multiple ways will be used to ensure connecting with community members. Among these are:

  • Text message through the college’s emergency communication system
  • E-mail through the college’s emergency communication system
  • Cell phone call through the college’s emergency communication system
  • Land line phones through the college’s emergency communication system
    NOTE: During an emergency the campus land line telephones are restricted to official use only.
