This informational guide is being disseminated to assist LACC’s employees and students in responding to different emergencies that they may confront in the course of their duties or while attending classes. This guide is a summary of the college’s overall Emergency Operations Plan (EOP), a copy of which should be located in each department office. This guide should be posted in a visible area in each department where it will be immediately available should one of the identified emergencies occur.

Please become familiar with the contents of this guide. In the event of an emergency it will serve as a quick reference for effective action. New employees and students should be made familiar with it as part of the departmental orientation program.

The names of Building Marshals and Floor Monitors as well as qualified First Aid and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) personnel working within your department and/or building should be listed where indicated on the “Serious Accident/Injury” page. Other informational blanks should also be filled in properly.

The LA County Sheriff’s Department is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day, to respond to any emergency which may occur. The Sheriff’s Department is primarily responsible for emergencies that occur within the boundaries of the campus. The Sheriff’s Department may still be called for emergencies that occur off-campus and will assist by contacting the appropriate agency.
