Emergency Management in Community Colleges: Why Colleges Need to Be Prepared
This practice brief provides community college leaders with recommendations for preparing for emergencies that could occur on their campuses. When issues occur on college campuses that have an impact on day-to-day operations, administrators need to be prepared to ensure that their students, faculty, and staff have the knowledge of what to do before and after these situations occur. Also, these issues can bring increased media attention and, if the incident is not handled properly, it can cause serious harm to the institution's reputation. Having plans and teams in place prior to an incident will benefit not only the institution but those that are directly affected by the emergency as well.
