College Emergency Response Plan

Emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. The safety and security of our students, faculty and staff is crucial. The College Emergency Response Plan will tell you what to do and where to go in an emergency. Take a few moments to review the steps you should take in different kinds of crisis situations such as fires, severe weather, medical emergencies, armed intruder/workplace violence incidents, bomb threats and utility emergencies. Being prepared for an emergency ahead of time can help protect you, your family, friends and peers.

JCCC Emergency Operations Plan

The JCCC Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) outlines the management structure, key responsibilities, emergency assignments and general procedures for designated personnel resources to follow during and immediately after an emergency or disaster. The EOP supplements procedures currently in place for the day‐to‐day management and operation of JCCC. The plan is designed to assist JCCC personnel in accomplishing their primary responsibilities: life safety, incident stabilization and property protection. JCCC emergency operations plans establish the basic framework following the National Incident Management System for critical incident response, emergency preparedness and managing the process of restoring college programs and services.
