Emergencies at Lower Columbia College

Emergencies or disasters can happen at any time and usually occur with little or no warning. When an emergency occurs at Lower Columbia College, our safety and speedy recovery depend on existing levels of preparedness and coordinated response from students, employees and visitors.
