NTC has an internal and external messaging system to warn people in the event of a crisis at the college. If the internal messaging system is activated it will broadcast over the internal phone system and loudspeakers what the emergency is and what instructions to follow. If the external phone system is activated participants will be notified by e-mail and their personal phones of the crisis and what instructions to follow. The data base for the external system is built based on the personal information provided to Students Services when the student enrolls at NTC. It is encouraged that students provide their personal telephone information when they enroll and keep it updated in the event it changes.
The Campus Security Department encourages all employees and students to report any criminal or suspicious activity to your Campus Security Office. Security personnel will document the incident and determine if local police involvement is required; however, Security personnel will always notify the police if requested to do so by the student, faculty, or staff member.
Reporting a Crime
To report a crime, you should contact NTC Campus Security direct at 715.803.1111. In an emergency situation Dial 911 for the appropriate emergency services. In most instances, crimes should also be reported to NTC’s Campus Security Department. This office will in turn contact the Wausau Police Department for investigation and follow-up. If a crime occurs off campus it should be reported to the police or sheriff’s department having legal jurisdiction for that area.
All elevators are equipped with emergency telephones.
All doorways at NTC are marked with the room number (e.g. C-177). In the event of an emergency or if you need assistance and you are unsure of where you are, use the room number to provide your location to Campus Security and Emergency Services.
