Emergency Response

You should familiarize yourself with the Immediate Action Guide (PDF) which will help you make decisions in emergency situations.

The planning for emergencies is a constant and ever-evolving process. The latest information will always be available in the Emergency Response Planning (PDF), and you should check back periodically for updates.

You can download the HCC Emergency Information card (PDF) to find additional information and local on-campus and off-campus resources.

The College has established the Emergency Management Planning Committee (EMPC) to coordinate and facilitate the emergency planning for the College. In addition, the EMPC is responsible for overseeing the activities of the College Violence Prevention Committee and the Behavioral Intervention Team. See the EMPC policy (PDF) for more information.

Behavioral Intervention

The Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is the College's required Threat Assessment Team. They can review information and conduct inquiries to help identify behaviors, and they will assist anyone who may be on a pathway to violence.
