Emergency Notification and Timely Warnings 

Federal law requires colleges to “immediately notify the campus community upon the confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or staff occurring on the campus, unless issuing a notification will compromise efforts to contain the emergency”. 

The Academy of Allied Health Careers utilizes on site notifications via teachers and staff, notifications by email and text, our website (www.aahctn.edu), our Facebook page (Academy of Allied Health), our local television station (WRCB), and the REMIND101 app.

The Academy of Allied Health Careers is responsible for issuing timely warnings and emergency notification. The college will, without delay, decide whether to issue a timely campus safety/crime warning or emergency notification on a case-by-case basis considering the facts surrounding a crime, including factors such as the nature of the crime, the continuing danger to the campus community and the possible risk of compromising law enforcement efforts. Information for timely campus safety/crime warnings and emergency notifications may also come from other law enforcement agencies. 

Depending on the particular circumstances of the incident, timely campus safety/crime warnings and emergency notifications may be distributed by any one or more of the following means: 

  1. E-mail and text.
  2. Posting an alert on The Academy’s web page and/or other sites where information will be likely to reach the campus community. 
  3. Posting on the outside entry doors of classrooms, break areas, and/or posting on bulletin boards in academic and group meeting areas. 

Anyone with information warranting a timely campus safety/crime warning or emergency notification should report the circumstances to the school, by calling 423-499-4999 or in person at 5600 Brainerd Road, Suite C-3, Chattanooga, TN 37411.   Students may also call 911 for immediate police attention. 


Evacuating a Building 

The Academy of Allied Health Careers posts evacuation maps in all classrooms and general meeting areas at both college locations. Students are advised to exit the building in a clam and orderly fashion and to remain evacuated until instructed that it is safe to return. Please adhere to the following procedures: 

  1. Stay calm, do not rush, do not panic. 
  2. Gather all personal belongings. 
  3. Close all doors and windows if safe to do so. 
  4. Wait for additional instructions from teachers or staff.
  5. Do not re-enter the building until instructed to do so.
