Emergency Management

The Emergency Management Division of CPTC provides a number of resources that are intended to give students and staff the ability to handle emergencies that may occur on our campuses. Our goal is to help you make the best decisions possible to protect yourself, but there is no substitute for common sense and awareness of your surroundings.
