Emergency Guidelines and Procedures
It is important to become familiar with this information and additional information in the Employee Handbook. You should review it periodically so that you are able to react to emergency situations in an appropriate manner. This information applies to all personnel, buildings, and grounds on the main campus of Reading Area Community College. Procedures for other facilities used by RACC are to be communicated to College site supervisors who will communicate such information to staff and students.

Panic Button Safety App
Using Panic Button Alert, subscribers can choose to contact 9-1-1, the emergency hotline, or initiate a silent alarm. In all situations, the safety team is notified of the action taken and provided with the subscriber’s name, contact information, and location to determine appropriate next steps.
RACC subscribers will need to login to their account in order to access their "personal access code", then use that code to log into the safety app.
- After installing the app and logging in with your personal access code, click continue to enable notifications.
- Press and hold to call the Safety and Security office, call 9-1-1, or send a Silent Alert.

In case of emergency, 911 is the first number you should call.
In the event of an on-campus emergency, students, faculty and staff can contact the Safety and Security Department by dialing extension 6291 from any campus telephone including the red phones located in the hallways throughout campus buildings.
