As you know, June 1 signals the start of the 2012 hurricane season, which runs through November 30. The health, safety and welfare of our faculty, staff and students is of utmost importance, and we want to ensure that the College community is aware of the steps Broward College is taking to prepare for a safe hurricane season.
Broward College’s BC Alert system uses a layered approach to communication, reaching out to the College family with emails, text messages, phone calls and postings to our web site (www.broward.edu
) and social media platforms. In addition to the information that will be available through BC Alert, there are several hotlines that will be updated with College status information in the event of a storm or other emergency: 954-201-6600

We are hoping that we are spared from storms this season, but we will be prepared should our service area be threatened. We will continuously monitor weather reports and share key information with you.
