Campus Emergency

At Nevada State College, we recognize the importance of integrated and comprehensive management and response when faced with an emergency situation. For this reason, Nevada State College’s Emergency Management Team ensures that the NSC campus community is prepared in the event of an emergency.

The team’s purpose is to emphasize advance preparations and teamwork by internal and external stakeholders, establish and maintain effective lines of communication, and provide continuous improvement while delivering leadership in preparing and responding to all emergency incidents.

The team provides general guidance, organizational structure, and direction on preparedness and communication to ensure that the College is ready to deal with unexpected incidents to protect the NSC faculty, staff, students, and the greater campus community.

The team’s focus may also be utilized during major emergencies that occur in close proximity to our campus but that do not directly impact our physical facilities. During this time, we will coordinate emergency communication/information from the City of Henderson.

All faculty, staff, and students are automatically enrolled in the emergency alert system. Make sure you receive the latest notifications and emergency alerts! Learn more or update your information on the University Police Services’ website. And don’t forget to download State Safe, the official NSC safety app!
