Emergency Guidelines and Procedures

It is important to become familiar with this information and additional information in the Employee Handbook. You should review it periodically so that you are able to react to emergency situations in an appropriate manner. This information applies to all personnel, buildings, and grounds on the main campus of Reading Area Community College. Procedures for other facilities used by RACC are to be communicated to College site supervisors who will communicate such information to staff and students.
