Emergency Action Plan

EMERGENCY EVACUATION PLAN

In the event of an emergency, students will be contacted through Omnilert System via LCAD email and telephone. Instructions will be given in the message.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE AND EVACUATION PROCEDURES

The Department of Academic Affairs/Student Life will be responsible for notifying the campus community upon the confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an imminent threat to the health and safety of students or employees occurring on the campus. This notification can be all of or part of our emergency notification capability to include: e-mail, Omnilert text notification, telephone alert, website alert, fire alarm evacuation or alert (specific building or entire campus), in person notification, bull-horn or other means.

 

LCAD will, without delay, and taking into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification and initiate the notification system, unless the notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

 

Campus Safety Officers are responsible for the confirmation that there is a significant emergency on campus. The Title IX Coordinator or in her absence, the appointed designee, will determine the content of the notification, and initiate the appropriate campus notification system. The campus authority for carrying out this process is the Title IX Coordinator and the college president or his/her designate in the event of his/her absence.

 

The Registrar’s Office will test the college emergency response and evacuation procedures at least once during the Fall and Spring semesters. It is highly encouraged that you update your contact information in self-service each semester.

 

The Registrar will file all information regarding scheduled drills, exercises and follow through for assessment and evaluation for emergency plans and capabilities. The Registrar will annually publicize emergency response and evacuation procedures and to document, for each test, a description of the exercise, the date, time and whether it was announced or unannounced.

EMERGENCIES

On campus and throughout Orange County, telephone 911 in any emergency. This central clearing number will route your call to the proper agency. It is a misdemeanor to call 911 in a non-emergency. A First-Aid kit is available in the Main Campus Administration Building, Big Bend and at South Campus for non-emergencies. A log is kept of all accidents. Please report any accident or emergency to College staff at the receptionist desk.

 

For a medical emergency on campus, notify the nearest faculty or staff member immediately. If the emergency is life-threatening (or if there is the slightest question) 911 will be called. If the accident or illness is obviously not life threatening but warrants medical attention, it is the policy of LCAD to send the individual to Saddleback Hospital Emergency Room. If the student does not have transportation LCAD will provide the cab fare.
