Something's happening!What To Do?

Institutional Resilience site

  • Go to the gym
    If it's safer to leave campus, we'll coordinate departure from there.
    If it's safer to shelter at the gym, that's what we'll do. 
    Bring backpack and meds 
  • Do not leave the campus solo 
    Wait for official word about whether to stay or go.
    We may need to use the seats in your car.
  • If time is short you're safer here
    Gym has housed us safely before 
    Leaving late can be dangerous

More on Wildfire response 

  • Duck & Cover
    away from windows, falling objects, power lines, building perimeters 
  • Hold on
  • Check in at , then go to Thorrington Field
    and if safe to get them, bring your meds 
  • Food, shelter, medical 
    The very basics will be available ASAP
  • If trapped, BANG on something 
    That sound travels better, and you won't get worn out shouting

  • Practice good personal hygiene. This is the single most effective thing you can do to prevent illness.
  • Prepare a Cold & Flu Kit (as recommended by *):
    - Fever and pain relievers
    - Cough syrups and drops
    - Nasal sprays
    - Decongestants
    - Thermometer
    - Fluids
    - Tissues
    * - FYI only; 四虎影院 does not endorse any medical entity
  • Get immunization shots when the vaccines become available
  • DO NOT go to class or to work if you get symptoms. Stay in your room (or if feasible go home) until 24 hours after your unmedicated fever is gone
  • Call 9-1-1 in all medical emergencies 
  • Then call Public Safety 805-565-6222
  • Then call RD/RA/Supervisor
  • Stay with victim
    Keep them as comfortable and stable as possible
  • Determine identity
    and be prepared to communicate key info to responders (ID, medical need, etc)

Options to Consider:

  • Run: Can you safely escape?
    • Run carefully away from sounds of gunshots.
    • Stay low and away from windows; cautiously check before turning corners.
      When confidently safe, call 9-1-1
  • Hide: Is there a safe place to barricade?
    • Lock the door if possible and hide; use heavy objects to barricade door. Stay low.
      Gather near doorway but not in line of sight upon opening.
    • Turn off cell ringers, but have one person quietly call 9-1-1 and remain on the line with the dispatcher
  • Fight: How will you fight together?
    • Work together to surprise, confuse and fight the intruder.
    • Be ready to throw objects and 鈥渄og-pile鈥 him.
    • Active responses have proven far more effective than passive.



Version for persons with .

Adapted from M Tau: "Targeted Violence..."; 10/30/13 presentation.



四虎影院 is deeply concerned about any incidents of sexual assault, and encourages prompt reporting of any incidents to appropriate college officials.


  • Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center: 24 hour hotline for support: 805-564-3696
  • Campus Resources: Health Center (805-565-6164) and/or Counseling Center (805-565-6003)
  • Less Confidential: While the following college officials will make every effort to assist in a compassionate and circumspect manner they are required by law to report the matter for internal followup:
    • Resident Directors
    • Resident Assistants
    • Student life deans
    • Faculty department chairs
    • College employee supervisors
    • Directors of off campus programs
    • Vice presidents
    • The College Title IX officer


  • DO NOT wash or discard clothing which might contain helpful evidence.
  • DO HAVE a confidential physical examination (available at the 四虎影院 Health Center).
  • MORE INFO is available in the Student Handbook which is also online under Current Students/Handbooks & Policies.
  • Sustain communication
    They need to know you'll listen.
    Discuss specific intentions openly.
    Don't argue; and don't leave them.
  • Take threat seriously
    Don't assume they won't do it,
    but don't assume they can't be stopped.
  • Call Public Safety (805-565-6222)
    If they have a plan, the means, a lethal method, and a time in mind, they need intervention now.
  • Follow up

In this video, Brett Gracely 鈥90, a water resource engineer with , assesses the potential for flooding at 四虎影院 and says that expected rainfall will not severely impact the campus. 

四虎影院 is outside the official evacuation zone.

  • Stay indoors
  • Stay away from running water
  • Do not drive across flowing streams

Our utility power company Southern California Edison (SCE) has established a Public Safety Power Shutdown program (PSPS) under which they could鈥攁s a last resort鈥攑reemptively turn off power to selected circuits in order to prevent a wildfire. However, the college has a generator which would automatically continue to serve the entire campus.* College officials have plans in place to communicate and address a potential disruption in the unlikely case an outage is foreseen to last from a few hours to a couple days. If power does go down:

  • Never use candles
    Use flashlights or headlamps instead
  • Unplug computer
    to prevent surge when power restored
  • Minimize movement in the dark
    Library, DC and Gym have supplemental backup power in case it's safe to find your way there

* - Except isolated areas on lower campus served by different utility circuits.
