Emergency Preparedness

New Mexico Junior College has an Emergency Management Plan for Critical Incidents. This Emergency Management Plan is intended to highlight potential areas of risk or vulnerability to campus personnel and facilities. The purpose of the plan is to enable all persons who might be present at NMJC during an emergency to remain calm and to aid them in taking action based on known facts. New Mexico Junior College has made the commitment to identify potential building and equipment areas to risks, to analyze those risks, to eliminate or minimize these risks, to actively plan and prepare to respond to emergencies by training response teams and to prepare restoration of vital services plans for emergency.

New Mexico Junior College has identified several specific emergencies, which could pose a threat to persons, who may be on campus. Some of these areas identified are as follows:
