Our offices, colleges, and centers have emergency procedures in place to address a variety of emergency situations.
In the event of a serious emergency or local area disaster, college officials will activate an Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC will assume responsibility for management of the situation and coordination with district police, local police, and fire and medical units.
Below you will find procedures for various emergency situations. You can also find this information in Emergency Procedures flip charts posted throughout our offices and campuses.
Accident or Injury (HAZMAT)
In a HAZMAT accident or injury, call the police immediately. Administer first aid if necessary and stay away from hazardous materials.
Active Shooter or Lockdown
In an active shooter situation, call the police immediately. Depending on the situation and your proximity to the shooter, you should run, hide, or fight.
Assault and Battery
Call the police if you have been the victim of or have witnessed any assault, battery, or threat of physical violence.
Bomb Threat or Suspicious Package
If you receive a bomb threat, then try to get as much information as you can from the caller. Call the police and give them the information, then wait for direction.
We support the rights of students and employees to practice their first amendment rights. If a sanctioned activity becomes violent, unsafe, or unlawful, then call the police.
In the event of an earthquake, take cover, stay away from windows, and wait for instructions from police or college officials.
Fire or Wildfire
In the event of a fire, pull a fire alarm and evacuate the building. Do not use elevators when evacuating due to a fire.
Floods or Severe Weather
In the event of severe weather or flooding, Los Rios Police will take the necessary precautions and may issue an alert to students and employees.
Hostage or Terrorist Situation
In a hostage or terrorist situation, evacuate the area and advise others to avoid the area. Get as much information about the situation as possible to report to dispatch.
Power Failure or Elevator Malfunction
In the event of a power failure, most buildings have emergency lighting that will turn on automatically. If asked to evacuate, then use the stairs, not an elevator.
In the event of serious illness, call the police and administer first aid if necessary.
Sexual Assault or Rape
If you are the victim of – or witness – sexual assault, then call the police and seek medical attention. Our colleges offer resources for filing a police report as well as getting confidential help.
Call district police at (916) 558-2221 and press zero to reach a dispatcher.
