When confronted with a minor emergency, DCTC normally carries out responsibilities largely independently. However, in the event of a major emergency/disaster, the actions of DCTC and the Office of the Chancellor must be closely coordinated to respond effectively. The DCTC Emergency Preparedness Plan encompasses several additional plans which support the overall All Hazards Planning Architecture. The objectives of these plans are:
To maximize the protection of lives and property;
To ensure DCTC can survive and continue to provide essential services;
To support local units of government;
To describe standards regarding training and exercise activities, plan maintenance, and other preparedness activities;
To ensure that all state and federal government planning requirements are met.
DCTC Emergency Procedures
The campus publishes an Emergency Procedures Reference Guide to assist the college community in common emergencies that may occur while on campus.
StarAlert is DCTC's emergency notification system for students and employees. It delivers time-sensitive emergency notifications and updates to you from campus leaders and the Public Safety Department, within minutes via phone calls, texts and/or emails.
All students and employees will receive StarAlert messages to their primary contact methods listed with the college.
