Lansing Community College

LCC conducting all-college fire drills in October

Throughout the next month, the college will be holding fire evacuation drills for all students, employees and guests at every campus and location. These drills are an important aspect of emergency preparedness and are a requirement under the Jeanne Clery Act. Everyone who is on campus at the time of the drill is required to participate.
 
The exact time of the drills will not be announced in advance, but you can expect them to begin in these general timeframes:

  • Morning of Monday, Oct. 3, at the Livingston County Center
  • Morning of Wednesday, Oct. 5, at West Campus
  • Afternoon of Wednesday, Oct. 5, at LCC East
  • Afternoon of Friday, Oct. 14, at Mason Aviation Maintenance Technology Center
  • Afternoon of Wednesday, Oct. 26, at Downtown Campus, with the goal of holding the drill at the end of a class period

The drills will begin with a fire alarm. When you hear the alarm, please proceed out of your building and wait outside, 50-100 feet from the doors. Do not leave campus, and do not clog the building entry and exits.
 
As this is a fire evacuation drill, elevators will not work. If anyone in your area requires assistance in evacuating, please help them as you are able. Members of the Building Emergency Response Team, or BERT, will be sweeping the buildings and can also help.
 
A friendly reminder: The drill cannot end until people are out of the buildings. The quicker everyone exits, the quicker the drill will be done.

Once the drill is complete, you will receive an “all clear” message via LCC Emergency Alert (using our RAVE system) to your email, desk phone and cell phone if you have signed up to receive messages on your cell.
