Emergency Announcements

There is no emergency at Blackhawk Technical College. The College is operating under normal conditions.

In the event of an Emergency this page will be updated with information about the nature of the incident, how to remain safe, and after the incident, the point at which safety has been restored.

Emergency Phone Numbers

BTC will utilize the local community's law enforcement, fire protection agency and EMT/paramedic services as the primary provider of emergency services to all facilities. Emergency personnel can be contacted from any BTC facility by dialing 911 from a pay phone, 9-911 from a BTC phone or cell phone. Remember depending on the campus it may be necessary to dial "9" first to get an outside line.

When calling 911 or 9-911 directly, always send someone to the information desk to direct emergency personnel. The person going to the information desk should be able to calmly explain the nature and location of the emergency. This person should also be familiar with the facility so they may guide emergency responders back to the location of the incident.
