Procedures for handling emergencies are available at each off-site center. It is assumed that in instances of natural disasters i.e., hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. -– the College will have advance warnings through the Alertus system and act accordingly. It is imperative that all students, faculty, and staff cooperate fully in the implementation of these procedures to prevent possible harm to individuals on our campus.

The Off-Site Center Director or designee will take immediate appropriate action during any general emergency or disaster. The Off-Site Center Director or designee will notify the main campus of actions taken.
Lines of Communication:
