Durham College (DC) is committed to providing the safest possible environment for employees, students and visitors. In the event of an emergency, DC and Ontario Tech University have collaborated to create a comprehensive emergency management program on campus.

The Emergency Management Plan provides guidance and direction for all aspects of emergency management including the coordination of mitigation, prevention, preparedness, response, continuity and recovery activities for any emergency on or near our campuses.

Posters with key emergency information can be found on the walls of hallways, classrooms, and offices across both DC campuses.
