3.20.4 Emergency Response

All significant emergencies or dangerous situations involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or staff occurring on the campus must immediately be reported to the Safety Coordinator. Upon receiving a report of these types of situations, the Safety Coordinator in conjunction with the President, or their designee, will determine if an immediate emergency response or evacuation procedure shall be initiated. If an emergency response or evacuation is warranted, an immediate warning will be sent out informing the campus community of this threat. Warnings will be published using the campus monitor system, class announcements, e-mail, campus paging system and the StarAlert Emergency Notification System, unless issuing a notification would compromise efforts to contain the emergency.

The emergency response and evacuation procedures are updated annually and are published in ATCC's Policy & Procedures Manual.

The emergency response and evacuation procedures are tested annually in all student occupied buildings on campus.
