In September, 2016 VCC will launch a new emergency safety response system called VCC Alerts, as a precautionary measure in case of an emergency.
The system works by immediately alerting staff and students during an emergency, via email and text message. All current staff and students will be automatically entered into the systems, with new students and employees being added at the time of registration/employement. Staff and students who have not provided the college with a cellphone number will be asked to update their information via VCC's intranet.
The college will also be launching an emergency procedures page on VCC.ca in the coming months that will outline how to prepare for emergency situations, details on how VCC Alerts works, as well as information on how to update contact information.
