Injury Reports

The priority and obligation of the district-wide Emergency Management Program (within the limits of its resources) is the safety and health of students, employees, and guests. After an injury has been reported to the Alamo Colleges Police Department, Coordinator of Campus Risk Management, and the District Enterprise Risk Management Team, SAC's Risk Management may conduct an incident investigation to determine the root cause of any injury or exposure event and provide corrective actions to avoid similar future incidents.

Safety Assessment

The district-wide Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) program provides comprehensive guidelines for all Alamo Colleges, with the primary objective to promote safety and effective loss prevention practices. Contact Risk Management if your area needs to be assessed for health and or safety hazards.

Emergency Notification Information

The Alamo Colleges District’s Emergency Notification System alerts students and employees to severe weather and other emergencies using phone calls, emails, and/or text messages.

Our Emergency Notification System enables us to schedule, send, and track personalized voice messages to up to six phone numbers per person and immediately send messages four different ways:
• Voice messages to home phones, work phones, cell phones, and email addresses
