The safety of the Virginia Highlands Community College (VHCC) during an emergency is predicated on advance planning, as well as building awareness about how the plans will be implemented. Students, faculty, staff and visitors will be better prepared in an emergency if they know how the campus will respond, where they can find information, and what they should do.
Key to that awareness is good communication. This site will be an essential tool for sharing plans and providing relevant information in case an emergency arises at VHCC or in the surrounding areas.
Please bookmark this site, as you will find relevant information and direction in the event of an emergency.
