Campus Safety and Security
The safety of students, visitors, faculty, and staff is a priority of Athens Technical College. Police and security officers are responsible for responding to on-campus emergencies and safety issues.
Students who would like a safety escort from classes to their vehicles should contact campus security at (706) 621-9817 on the Athens Campus or (706)-213-2100 on the Elbert County Campus. Staff members at the Greene County (706-453-7435) or Walton County (770-207-3130) campuses will assist students at those locations.
Emergency Action Plan
Each classroom and laboratory contains a posted emergency action plan for fire or hazardous weather conditions. The plan includes evacuation instructions in case of emergency. Please take a moment to review the plan in each of your classrooms at the beginning of the term.
In the event of fire, personal injury, or criminal action, someone witnessing the incident should notify the nearest instructor or staff member immediately. That person should also notify the director of safety and security (706-355-5039) or the vice president for student affairs (706-355-5029) immediately. If an emergency occurs on the Elbert (706-213-2100), Greene (706-453-7435), or Walton (770-207-3130) campuses, contact the respective campus director immediately.
