Building Evacuation/Lockdown Process
If an emergency on campus requires the evacuation of a building or buildings, notification to evacuate will be sent via fire alarm, the college-wide P.A. system, Alertus Mass Notification System, or through cell phone texts, e-mails, or phone calls via the college’s subscriber-based emergency notification system (OmniAlert) and the subscriber-based In all cases, evacuate calmly to the designated evacuation assembly area for your specific building. Evacuation routes and evacuation assembly areas are noted in each room. Remain at the location until given an “all clear” announcement from an authorized LWTech official. In the event of a building lockdown, the campus will be advised of the situation via the P.A. system, Alertus Mass Notification System, and OmniAlert. Follow announced instructions and stay inside until an “all clear” announcement is given.
