Emergency/Crisis Procedures

Brookhaven Graduates

Brookhaven College has crisis procedures in place to help ensure the safety of students during an emergency. An emergency/crisis procedure chart is posted in each campus classroom. Evacuation signs in each building indicate evacuation routes and assembly points, and building coordinators are designated in all facilities to assist students and employees in an emergency. A brochure for students with additional information about the Brookhaven College evacuation plan is available in Student Life, Room S201. Information about emergencies also may be available by calling the Student Inclement Weather and Emergency Information Hotline at 972-860-4200.

INCLEMENT WEATHER, HEALTH AND/OR EMERGENCY CLOSINGS

In the rare and unlikely occurrence that may cause the immediate closing of the college, such as ice, tornado warnings, a hostile intruder or health precaution, relevant information will be posted to the college’s Web site, broadcast to the major media and disseminated through social media, Twitter, MySpace and Facebook. Brookhaven College’s home Web page will display a notification of any closings, delays or advisories. If there is no notice of changes or delays, then classes are in session as usual. You also may refer to announcements on major television and radio stations in the event that the Brookhaven College Internet site is not operational.

It is each student’s and employee’s responsibility to be informed when weather, health or emergency closings may be likely by checking the major broadcast media, the college’s main number, 972-860-4700 or the Web site: www.BrookhavenCollege.edu. Unexpected closings will be handled by closings of the main entry gates to the college, but every effort will be made to notify students and employees in advance, whenever possible.
