The purpose of the Hazardous Weather Annex is to provide a hazard-specific framework for use during a weather-related emergency or disaster impacting Dallas County Community College District.
The Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC) or EOC Director is the primary responsible party for addressing all phases of emergency management related to hazardous weather situations. Delegation may be made for various response functions through the EOP and its ESF annexes.
The DCCCD emergency notification system is not activated for every severe weather warning in the District's service area. Some established criteria identifies the minimum requirements for broadcasting alerts. Alerts may be issued outside of these criteria as deemed necessary by the EMC. DCCCD activation mode is dependent on impact areas. For example, a tornado warning may not trigger facility notifications if a campus will not be directly impacted, but text messages may be sent for those in the campus service area.
