Campus Security Information

If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911 or the Drake State Police Department at 256-551-5223.

Drake State Community and Technical College goes to great lengths to ensure the safety and security of its faculty, staff, students and visitors to the campus. The College has developed an Emergency Operations Plan, outlining key safety items as well as emergency notification and evacuation procedures. Safety procedures are also outlined in the Student Handbook and on the College’s website.

Additionally, emergency action procedures, emergency route maps, designated safe locations and assembly areas for each building on the Main Campus, and an emergency contact list identifying individuals to report campus emergencies and Clery Act crimes are posted on bulletin boards and offices located throughout the Main Campus. Furthermore, emergency action procedures are tested periodically using drills, and appropriate modifications are made as deemed necessary.
