Safety and security is paramount at WCTC, and the College uses a mass notification
system to better communicate with students and staff during a campus emergency. We
use the following tools during emergencies:
Evacuation Maps and Emergency Procedures
WCTC requires emergency evacuation in the event of fire, chemical spill or bomb threat.
Upon hearing and seeing the alarm, you should immediately evacuate the building and
proceed to the designated parking lot location for your building. Do not use elevators
or walk through other buildings to get to the designated area.
We have posted evacuation maps and emergency procedures in classrooms and offices
throughout campus. These postings identify exit routes, severe weather shelters and
designated evacuation staging areas, as well as recommended steps for specific emergencies.
For additional details, please review the WCTC Emergency Procedures document by clicking
this icon within MyWCTC.
When the National Weather Service issues a tornado warning for Waukesha County, the
College activates the Severe Weather Policy. At this time, you should immediately
proceed to a designated shelter area. Shelter areas are identified on the campus evacuation
maps posted in classrooms and offices.
