Each institutional department/program has a copy of the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Ripley Emergency Preparedness Response Guide. The plan is distributed to faculty and staff. Included in the Guide are Emergency Response Plans, Emergency Notifications, Medical Emergency Plan, Active Shelter Protocol. Floor Plans, Evacuation Routes, and Safe Places information are posted in public areas and classrooms. Annually TCAT Ripley conducts emergency preparedness drills to prepare faculty, staff, and students in the event of emergency situations.
