Emergency Preparedness, Safety and Security

Immediate Emergencies requiring Police, Fire Department and Emergency Medical Personnel

Tarrant County College campuses are staffed with police officers 24 hours a day, every day. Furthermore, a police dispatch office is also in-service at all times. Should an emergency arise on any campus, please contact the police dispatch office immediately by dialing 817-515-8911 or 58911 from any on-campus telephone. Additional response by the appropriate responding agency will be coordinated from there.

For the fastest response to the emergency of any type, all efforts should be made to contact the TCC Police Department first. TCC officers are already on campuses, and they know the campuses well.

Dialing 911 from a cell phone on a campus will not connect you to the TCC Police Department but will connect you to the municipal public safety call center closest to your location.

Information Available to the Public Related to Emergencies

As with any situation, the TCC Police Department endeavors to notify students, faculty and staff in a timely manner dictated by the circumstances surrounding the situation involved. Information is normally disseminated through myTCC.

Emergency information obtained there includes:

  • Campus or site closure due to weather, mechanical, or other difficulties.
  • Relocation of classes and services due to any of the above.
  • Additional information available is linked to their location.
  • Contact information regarding additional information.
