Lower Columbia College (LCC) recognizes that the campus community has the right to personal safety and security.
In the event of a fire on campus, including student housing, the building fire alarm should be activated and 911 should be called, followed by campus security (360) 442-2911. Campus security can help ensure affected buildings are evacuated. Students and employees should familiarize themselves with the locations of fire alarm pull stations, fire extinguishers, exits and designated meeting places to be used during an alarm.
Campus Safety and Security will prepare educational materials and programs regarding fire safety for the campus community. If a fire occurs, building occupants should evacuate immediately to their pre-determined aggregation point and call 911.
Fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, heat detectors, sprinkler heads and pull stations are installed for the protection of building occupants and are wired directly to a 24 hour monitoring service.
Tampering with fire protection systems or initiating a false alarm may result in disciplinary action.
This policy extends to all LCC student occupied housing facilities.
LCC will prepare an annual fire safety report, report fire statistics, and maintain a fire log, as required by 34 C.F.R. § 668.49.
Lower Columbia College maintains and practices fire safety according to the procedures listed below.
