This is the only approved Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) for Western Technical College. It supersedes all other EOPs and has been developed exclusively for Western and its satellite campuses. This EOP consists of 4 parts: The Base Plan, Functional Annexes, Threat/Hazard-Specific Annexes, and Attachments.
Western is committed to providing a safe environment for all employees, students, and guests. The College expressly prohibits any acts or threats of violence by any person in or about the College’s facilities at any time. Western will respond promptly to threats, acts of violence, and acts of aggression by employees, students, partners, or other community members. This plan will advise you on what to watch for and what to do in the event of campus violence.
