How will LCC notify me of an emergency situation?
At the Downtown and West Campus locations, all the classroom buildings have emergency public address paging systems. As quickly as enough is known in order to provide accurate information and instructions after an emergency situation develops, a message can be broadcast over the paging systems.
Notifications may also be made through these means, which allow students and employees at their homes, traveling to the college or who are at other locations to receive messages:
- The LCC home page.
- The Emergency Star Alert System emergency email and text messaging system.
- Televisions in the building lobbies.
- The college’s radio station WLNZ, as well as other radio and television stations.
- Campus Communication employee email and LCC student email accounts.
How can I prepare myself for an emergency on campus?
Every classroom should have an emergency information poster near the door. Become familiar with the instructions on the poster. Please notify LCC Police (extension 1800) if the poster is missing from your classroom.
LCC publishes an Emergency Procedure Manual, which is available to all students and employees from the LCC Police Department and the LCC Emergency Management and Safety Services Department. It contains information on safety, crime prevention and emergencies. Be sure to get your own copy. Read it and become familiar with its contents.
There are evacuation route and shelter area maps posted in the hallways of all LCC buildings. Take time to review the map for your area, so you will know the best route to take to leave the building or to seek shelter inside during an emergency.
Remember, during an emergency – walk and remain calm. Help persons with disabilities. Call 911 if emergency rescue personnel are needed to assist a person with disabilities.
