There are close to 1,200 community colleges in the United States, and their level of crisis preparation ranges from very thorough to not prepared at all. A survey of American Association of Community Colleges membership found a number of community colleges that not only had good crisis plans but were proud of the work that had gone into them and had found them extremely helpful in a time of stress and chaos. This article takes a look at two community college crisis plans that could be a model for many others.
