Any campus location may have a need to close and evacuate the campus. The decision to close a campus location comes from Arizona Western College President or designee. Notification of campus closure and evacuation will go out by our phone emergency alert system, the emergency notification text system, local media and social media.

Once the notification sounds, cancel class immediately and dismiss students, shut down offices and leave campus immediately. Arizona Western College Campus Police and Facilities Management will be checking buildings and putting up closure signs.

Please note that a situation might occur with a decision to close a single AWC location but not all locations. That will be relayed in the notification. Decision to close Arizona Western College might come from a situation on that particular campus or due to a condition in the immediate area of the campus.
