In the event that there is a death/fatality on campus, it is very important that authorities are notified immediately so that the area can be secured and an investigation initiated as quickly as possible.


The person who discovers or witnesses a fatality should:

  • Remain calm.
  • Call 911 and LVC public safety (ext. 6111).
  • If safe to do so, stay with the victim until authorities arrive.
  • If you are a witness, write down as much information possible.
  • Touch as little as possible as the area may be a crime scene.
