Annual Security Report
Blue Ridge Community College is responsible for preparing and distributing the Annual Security Report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act).
The Annual Security Report is published every year by October 1 and contains three years of selected campus crime statistics and certain campus security policy statements in accordance with the Clery Act.
Emergency Messaging Alert System
Blue Ridge Community College offers an emergency messaging alert system as part of its comprehensive emergency preparedness plan to quickly notify students, faculty and staff of campus emergencies or campus closures via SMS text message, e-mail, voice message or any combination of the three. Participation is completely voluntary.
In the event of a campus emergency, it is vital that Blue Ridge Community College is able to contact you as quickly as possible with critical information regarding campus emergencies or closures. Students are strongly encouraged to sign-up online.
Use of this system is restricted to current students and employees of Blue Ridge Community College.
Reporting a Crime, Emergency, or Safety Concern
The Henderson County Campus facilities are patrolled by uniformed deputies from the Henderson County Sheriff's Department. Criminal actions and emergencies should be reported to the deputy on duty (243-9950 cell, or 694-1770 office) and to the Vice President for Finance and Operations (694-1716) as they occur.
Prompt reporting of all incidents or occurrences is encouraged to allow deputies to respond as soon as possible. In addition to completing an internal Incident Report, the College shall contact the proper law enforcement agency, if necessary, to ensure an appropriate response for all reports received. In the event of emergency, danger, injury or criminal activity, the victim/witness is advised to also call the local police, fire or emergency service within the campus jurisdiction.
The emergency number in both Henderson and Transylvania Counties, both from on campus and off, is 911.
