Emergency Procedures

Campus Safety

For emergencies, please dial 9-1-1.  To contact police for non-emergency situations, call the Campus Police Dispatch at 805-893-3446.  Please also notify KITP's Chief Administrative Officer or the Director, as soon as it is safe for you to do so.

The Campus Safety Officer (CSO) Escort Service can be reached by calling the Police Dispatch Escort Phone Line at 805-893-2000. We encourage everyone to use this service whenever they feel uncomfortable or unsafe walking or biking alone. CSOs are equipped with digital radios which allow them to be in constant contact with the Police Dispatch and Police Officers.

Immediately exit the building and meet on the lawn across from the 1500 wing, adjacent to Harold Frank Hall. Await an "all clear" from the Chief Administrative Officer or a Fire Safety official prior to returning into the building.
