Campus Emergency Procedures

The Los Angeles Film School Building Emergency Preparedness & Response Plan outlines policies and procedures for managing major emergencies that may threaten the health and safety of the campus community or significantly disrupt its programs and activities. The plan provides a structure for coordinating preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of LAFS personnel and resources. The plan applies to a broad range of major emergencies, including but not limited to fires, extended power outages, earthquakes, active shooters, bomb threats, and other events impacting the life and safety of campus constituents. It is the official emergency response plan for the Los Angeles Film School and supersedes all previous plans.
