In The Event of An Emergency

Our ability to survive a disaster also depends on you doing your part to prepare for the unexpected. When calling an emergency assistance number, remember to:

  1. Give your name, location and phone number.
  2. Describe what happened.
  3. Do not hang up until asked to do so.

Look for information from your Lone Star Email (UserID@lonestar.edu or UserID@my.lonestar.edu), Twitter, and local media sources.

Emergency Procedures

An involved and informed community is a well prepared community. Your partnership with Lone Star College and the Office of Emergency Management is key to our security and emergency management strategy. View the LSC Emergency Preparedness Guide for more information.
