Emergency Procedures

Our offices, colleges, and centers have emergency procedures in place to address a variety of emergency situations.

In the event of a serious emergency or local area disaster, college officials will activate an Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC will assume responsibility for management of the situation and coordination with district police, local police, and fire and medical units.

Below you will find procedures for various emergency situations. You can also find this information in Emergency Procedures flip charts posted throughout our offices and campuses.
