Campus Emergency Procedures


Before an emergency occurs

  • Know the safe evacuation routes for your specific building and floor (see next page).

When an emergency occurs

  • Keep calm and do not run or panic. Your best chance of emerging from an emergency is with a clear head.
  • Evacuation is not always the safest course of action.  If directed to evacuate, take all of your belongings and proceed safely to the nearest evacuation route.
  • Do not leave the area. Remember that faculty and other staff members need to be able to account for your whereabouts.
  • Do not re-enter building until informed it is safe by a Campus Safety Officer or other College staff member.
  • If directed to evacuate the campus, follow the evacuation routes established by Campus Safety or other College staff member.

After an emergency occurs

  • If an emergency disrupts normal campus operations or causes the College to close for a prolonged period of time, students are expected to complete the course assignments listed on the syllabus as soon as it is reasonably possible to do so.
  • Students can determine the College’s operational status by checking the web site at http://www.fullcoll.edu, calling the College’s main number at (714) 992-7000, or tuning into area radio and television stations.  Students should assume that classes will be held unless they hear or read an official closure announcement.
