General Life Saving Information
Study the emergency "shelter/ evacuation" maps located in the campus building hallways and classrooms. Know ahead of time how to get from your classroom or office to the closest designated shelter area, or to exit the building by the most direct route during an evacuation.
Remain calm and walk - do not run.
Persons with disabilities - go to stairway landings and wait for emergency rescue personnel. Stairwells are constructed with a higher fire rating than any other areas of a building. Emergency personnel responding to the building will be checking the stairway landings for persons with disabilities upon their arrival.
Faculty - Stay with your students and provide them with direction to the nearest shelter area or to the nearest exit. Be prepared to account for your students. Notify LCC Police (dial 911 from a college phone or (517) 483-1800 from a non-college phone) of any persons with disabilities requiring assistance. If possible, have someone stay behind with persons with disabilities until emergency personnel arrive.
When evacuating, remember to turn off the lights and lock your office or classroom behind you.
Life safety is more important than property. Take only those things you can gather immediately.
Call 911 from a college phone or (517) 483-1800 from a non-college phone to report any injuries or medical emergencies.
