Want LAVC to Notify You During a Campus Emergency? Update Your Emergency Contact Info!

Los Angeles Valley College is asking all its students, faculty and staff to check that he/she has provided the most current emergency contact information to the college. In the event of an emergency situation on or near campus, the College may need to contact you or someone close to you.

If you would like to receive emergency notifications from LAVC, please check that the college has your up-to-date emergency contact information on file.

  • Faculty/Staff—Please take a moment to enter or double check that your up-to-date emergency contact information is noted in the LACCD Portal. You can provide your work, home and mobile number as well as your work and personal email addresses to be notified during a campus emergency. Please note: Emergency contact information you may provided prior to 2016 was not automatically migrated to the college's current emergency notification system, so you will need to provide your information on the LACCD Portal. View instructions on how to your emergency contact information on the LACCD Portal.
     
  • Students—In an emergency, current LAVC students will be notified through their LACCD student email address (@student.laccd.edu) and the phone number(s) on file in their student records. Students can choose to forward their LACCD emails to a personal email address; Read instructions on how to set up your LACCD account emails to forward to your personal email. Students who wish to update their phone numbers on their student records will need to submit a Student Information change form to the LAVC Admissions and Records Office.

Since 2014, LAVC has been using Blackboard Connect to send emergency alert notifications to students, faculty and staff. This system allows the college to simultaneously send emergency notifications by email, voice message, and text message.
