Safety & Security

Emergency Preparedness

When confronted with a minor emergency, Inver Hills normally carries out responsibilities largely independently. However, in the event of a major emergency/disaster, the actions of Inver Hills Community College and the Office of the Chancellor must be closely coordinated to respond effectively. The Inver Hills Community College Emergency Preparedness Plan encompasses several additional plans which support the overall All Hazards Planning Architecture. The objectives of these plans are:

  1. To maximize the protection of lives and property;
  2. To ensure Inver Hills can survive and continue to provide essential services;
  3. To support local units of government;
  4. To describe standards regarding training and exercise activities, plan maintenance, and other preparedness activities;
  5. To ensure that all state and federal government planning requirements are met.

The campus publishes an Emergency Reference Guide to assist the community in common emergencies that may occur while on campus. These Reference Guides are located in all classrooms and are distributed to employees. Review a copy of the current Emergency Reference Guide.
