The college holds the safety and well-being of its students, staff and visitors in the highest regard. We encourage everyone to contact Campus Security if you witness any suspicious activity or have any safety concerns while on campus
The majority of the emergencies that take place on campus are medical, which campus security coordinates with Fire & Ambulance. Police will respond to all violent incidents including an active shooter on campus. If you witness suspicious or dangerous behavior warranting police response call 911 first, and then call the GHC Switchboard (360) 532-9020.
