Why is this important?
Taking the proper steps to be prepared for a potential emergency or disaster situation can significantly decrease loss.

We all have a responsibility to promote safety awareness.
Emergency Preparedness &
Response Committee
The committee has been established to provide guidance regarding the actions that must be taken in the event of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students, faculty, staff, or campus visitors at the Henderson, NV location of ITT Technical Institute.
Emergency Preparedness & Response Guide
Purpose is to establish policies, procedures, and processes for the implementation of the ITT Technical Institute Henderson campus’ Emergency Preparedness & Response Program in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations.

All department managers and program chairs have a copy of the guide. They are also available at the Front Desk and by request in the LRC.

The guide will be updated annually.

On-Campus Drills
On-campus drills and exercises will give students, faculty, and staff an opportunity to practice the skills that will prove valuable in the event of an emergency or disaster situation. At least once per calendar year, a drill will be held (either announced or unannounced) to test the emergency response and evacuation procedures.
Involving Students
All students MUST:
contact information quarterly (if a student has an address, phone number or email change during the quarter this information must be reported to the school as soon as possible);
their Student Portal daily for news and alerts;
potential hazards or dangerous situations IMMEDIATELY to any staff member (this staff member will then take the necessary steps to communicate the issue to a member of the Emergency Preparedness & Response Committee);
themselves with all exits and evacuation routes;
all established procedures in the event of an emergency or disaster situation.
