Emergencies can come without warning at any time. Being prepared is the best way to handle unexpected incidents and disasters. The information in this guide is intended to cover most emergencies but is not all-inclusive. Use common sense when instructions are not given. Think before you act, then act swiftly to minimize the exposure to danger. It is important to keep the information in this plan up to date.
LAVC's Emergency Response Plan has been designed to assist the college community in the protection of life and property in the event of an earthquake, fire, explosion, or other emergency requiring a coordinated response to assist the injured, protect property and restore the college to normal operations.
This Emergency Coordinators Manual provides a basic contingency plan for College Administrators and supervisors in the event of campus emergencies. While this guide does not cover every conceivable situation, it does supply the basic guidelines necessary to cope with most campus emergencies.
The College policies and procedures described herein are expected to be followed by all personnel whose responsibilities and authority cover the operational procedures found in this manual. It is also noted that there could be many unpredictable factors and this plan should be taken as a guide. Campus emergency operations will be conducted using the guidelines in this manual. Any exceptions to these emergency preparedness procedures will be conducted by, or with the approval of, College Administrators directing and/or coordinating the emergency operations.
All requests for procedural changes, suggestions, or recommendations will be submitted in writing to the Vice President , Administrative Services.
