Emergency Preparedness Procedures
In case of emergency, Bristol Community College has developed and tested preparedness measures to best ensure the safety of students, faculty and staff.
Become familiar with these procedures. Emergency preparedness is practiced frequently on all of our campuses to instill best practices in all of the members of our BCC community. View the Bristol Community College Preparedness Manual.
Threat assessment team
The college maintains an Active Threat Assessment Team whose sole focus is to evaluate whether an individual presents a threat to the college community. This team functions as a rapid response team, convening when a potential threat is reported.
If you are aware of or observe behavior that is troubling or of concern, please do not hesitate to contact the office of the Vice President for Enrollment and Student Services at 774.357.2150.
If the threat is an emergency or involves criminal activity, please contact Campus Police immediately.
