Safety and Security
At John Tyler Community College, the safety, health and well-being of our students and employees are of the utmost importance. Plans and procedures are continually reviewed, and training takes place to ensure our employees have the best information possible to help them not only respond to but to prevent a crisis situation.
In the event of an emergency, the College will use a variety of methods to notify students, faculty, staff and the public. These methods include, but are not limited to: Tyler Alert, employee e-mail, student e-mail, employee voicemail, the College web site, the public address system, security staff, area emergency coordinators, fire alarms, indoor security call boxes, electronic bulletin boards, and media outlets.
