Emergency and Safety Preparedness Update

El Camino College is dedicated to ensuring that all employees and students are prepared to respond to any emergency situation in a way that will achieve the highest level of safety for everyone. Through emergency and safety training, we offer the necessary resources to provide a safe and secure environment for students, employees and visitors. The ECC Procedures for Emergencies were recently updated, and will be posted throughout ECC and CEC. Additionally, enhanced training sessions have been implemented for ECC Police and new safety education programs are being put in place at both locations.


ECC recently added a specialized unit to the District’s Emergency Operations Plan. The Assessment, Intervention and Management for Safety (AIMS) Team was created to provide early intervention in situations where people are disruptive, harmful, or threatening to the college community. In addition, ECC provides emergency notifications via email and reverse 911 office phones, as well as postings to the ECC website. ECC is now utilizing the Nixle Community Information Service that allows us to create and deliver messages to subscribers instantly via cell phone text message and/or email. It’s free and easy to register at www.nixle.com. Notifications may also be accessed online at www.nixle.com.


Remember: Even with all of these safety measures in place, a truly safe campus will only be achieved through the cooperation of students and employees. If you see or hear something that does not appear quite right, please contact Campus Police at 310-660-3100 or 3100 from any office phone on the ECC campus. You may remain anonymous if you wish. Have a safe and fun summer!
