Medical Emergency: How to Respond

Scroll down this page for information on When To Call 911, Transportation of Injured or Ill Persons, First Aid Kits and Seizure First Aid, Fire Extinguishers, and Automated External Defibrillators (AED).

When to Call 911

Contact 911 if you believe a person may need emergency assistance, if you suspect a head or neck injury, if a person loses consciousness and if you witness someone having a seizure. LCC needs to ensure community members receive the best care possible.

Transportation of Injured or Ill Persons

Due to possible liability issues and medical complications during transportation, LCC discourages employees from transporting other employees, students, or campus visitors who may be injured or ill.

In the event that a campus community member needs transport and cannot arrange for it themselves, 911 should be contacted. Professional transport ensures that medical attention can be provided en route.

LCC also recognizes that some disaster situations may require alternate transportation when campus cannot be served by licensed ambulance services.

First Aid Kits

First aid kits can be found in strategic locations across the campus for the purposes of providing basic first aid treatment. First aid kits contain basic first aid supplies such as gloves, assorted bandages, tape, alcohol, burn gel and antiseptic wipes. First Aid kits are re-stocked on a regular basis.

  First Aid Kit locations are listed on the campus map. Click any building to see locations.

Seizure First Aid (Seizure Response Protocol)

About 1 out of 10 people has had a seizure. That means seizures are common, and one day you might need to help someone during or after a seizure.

  Learn what you can do to keep that person safe until the seizure stops by itself. Provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Automated External Defibrillators (AED)

AEDs are portable devices that use electrical therapy, defibrillation, to stop arrhythmia, which allows the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm. AEDs are used to treat life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.

  AED locations are listed on the campus map. Click any building to see locations.
