As part of the College's commitment to keeping the campus safe for students, employees, and visitors, Langara will be conducting an Emergency Lockdown Drill at the 100 West 49th Avenue main campus on Friday, July 10, 2015

The lockdown drill is required to test the College’s emergency response plan and lockdown procedures. These drills help identify areas where plan and procedures can be improved.

“This drill will involve the entire campus, including students, employees, faculty, contractors, and visitors,” said David Aucoin, Langara’s Manager of Security, Safety & Emergency Management. “These exercises are needed in order to test all of our internal communications tools to help us maintain the highest level of safety and security for our campus community."

All employees and students have been provided advanced notice and information regarding the drill procedures. Detailed information on what to do during a lockdown is outlined on the Emergency Lockdown page on our website. The full College Emergency Procedures guide can be found online and in every classroom and office on campus.
