The Department of Public Safety at TCC strives to create and maintain a safe, secure environment for the college community. Each campus is staffed with security officials; emergency preparedness plans and an alert system (to communicate campus closures due to inclement weather or other safety issues) are in place to ensure a timely response to situations that may occur.
Stay informed: TCC Alerts
TCC Alerts is an opt-in emergency notification system used by the college. During an emergency, severe weather event, or other time-sensitive situation impacting the college community, TCC officials can send notifications to subscribed phone numbers and email addresses.
An emergency can occur at any time without warning. The Department of Public Safety provides guidance, direction and training to the college community on prevention, protection, response, and recovery from emergency incidents.
