Power Outages

Stay in your classroom or office for approximately 10 minutes following a power outage. Often, power outages are brief and power is restored in less than 10 minutes. After 10 minutes and power is not restored, evacuate the building. If the power outage lasts longer than 10 minutes, it is likely the outage could be prolonged. Additionally, some hallway and stairway areas on campus are lit by battery powered emergency lights, which typically will stay lit approximately 20 minutes.

Persons with disabilities - go to stairway landings and wait for emergency rescue personnel. Upon their arrival, emergency personnel responding to the building will be checking the stairway landings for persons with disabilities. Stay together as a group. Faculty - stay with your students, and be prepared to account for them. Notify LCC Police (dial 911) of any persons with disabilities requiring assistance. If possible, have someone stay behind with persons with disabilities until emergency personnel arrive.

Remain calm and walk - do not run.

Keep at least 100' from the buildings and from emergency vehicles.

Gather in the designated area and wait for further instructions.

Designated areas are:

  • Main Campus - Washington Mall.
  • West Campus - the parking lot area outside the "Tower" entrance.
  • All other campus locations - the parking lot outside the main entrance.
