In the event of a medical emergency or an active shooter, students should call 911 and then, if it is safe, Campus Police at 803.738.7199. If an emergency occurs, the college will use a variety of methods to communicate additional information and instructions including the MTC Information Centers, text messaging, campus loud speakers, MTCVNN, voice mail, email, college intranet, and the MTC website homepage. In addition, MTC has placed emergency call boxes in campus parking lots to provide immediate communication to Campus Police in the event of an emergency. Students and employees are asked to report safety concerns or suspicious activities to Campus Police at 803.738.7199.
All students are strongly encouraged to register for the college’s emergency text messages by using the link to MTC ALERTS found under the Services and Links section on MyMTC Student home page.
When a family emergency exists, MTC Campus Police will attempt to deliver a message to a student. Students are strongly encouraged to leave a copy of their class schedule with relatives to save time if an emergency arises.
