Austin Community College will practice emergency response procedures and test its emergency notification system as part of Emergency Preparedness Week June 13-17.
The college designates the third week of each semester as Emergency Preparedness Week to inform students, faculty, and staff what they should do if an emergency or disaster strikes on campus.
ACC will conduct building evacuation drills at select campuses throughout the week and test its Emergency Alert System on Wednesday, June 15. This communications system sends emergency information to students, faculty, and staff through emergency message boards, email, and voice/text messages. Signing up for alerts is not necessary; faculty, staff, and students can simply verify their information in Online Services to make sure they receive notifications at their preferred number(s). (After logging in, click “ACC Emergency Alert” on the menu page.)
Visit the Emergency Preparedness Week webpage for details about the drills and emergency procedures, as well as instructions on downloading ACC’s Emergency Mobile App.
ACC’s Emergency Management website includes extensive information and resources about responding to various emergency scenarios.
