Emergency Alerts

In order to stay informed about emergencies affecting our campus, Seattle Central College has implemented an emergency notification system that can be used to notify students, faculty, and staff. You can sign up for this free service by visiting SeattleCollegesAlerts.


Preparedness and emergency response exercises (drills) help reinforce skills needed during an actual emergency on campus. During selected times throughout the school year, we conduct active shooter, earthquake, evacuation, and fire drills. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to participate and provide feedback about their drill experience so that we can continually improve how we approach emergencies. A few days prior to each drill, the Public Information Office will send out communication to faculty and students to inform them about the upcoming drill and what to expect during the drill.

First Aid

Campus Security maintains a first aid kit and Naloxone (Narcan) in the Campus Security Office (BE-1108) and responds to reports of medical incidents on Seattle Central College property. While Campus Security staff are trained in first aid and CPR, their ability to help beyond basic first aid is limited. If you witness a medical emergency, or you are having one yourself, first call 9-1-1 to get help on the way, then call Campus Security at 206-934-5442.

See Something, Say Something

Campus Security is everyone's business and we rely on timely reports of suspicious activity on campus. If you witness suspicious behavior or something that does not seem “right,” please call the Campus Security Office at 206.934.5442 as soon as possible to report it. We value your reports and help in keeping our campus safe.

If you have a concern about employee conduct please see our confidential portal for reporting.
