Safety and Emergencies
If there is a fire or other emergency requiring evacuation or other action, an alarm may sound in the campus building or a broadcast may be heard through classroom telephones. Students, faculty and staff are expected to respond promptly to the fire alarm and evacuate the building. Please move quickly and orderly to the nearest exit.
Each classroom has a telephone from which to dial 911 if necessary. If you or someone near you has a disability that impacts emergency response.....do you know what to do?

Your Safety on Campus
KPC has a great safety record, but it is a public facility. The Campus Security Report contains campus crime statistics for the three most current years; campus security measure; crime reporting and alert procedures; crime prevention strategies and educational programs; the sexual offenses policy, complaint procedures, and disciplinary actions for violations of alcohol and other drug policies. See: KBC Security Report. UAA Safety Home.
Students are cautioned to be aware of their physical safety and keep track of their belongings while on campus or in the parking areas. Do not leave your car keys in your automobile or your vehicle unlocked. Practice safety precautions especially at night, or when there are few people in the area.
When students, staff, faculty or visitors have a safety concern, witness or experience a breech of the Code of Conduct or a crime, campus administrators are the first point of contact. The campus director (Carol Swartz), student services coordinator (Kim Frost), or other available staff or faculty should be notified immediately. If no University employee is available, the Homer Police Department should be contacted. The campus administration solicits your active support in reporting all crimes and incidents.
Students taking classes that include field trips or the use of mechanical equipment must complete a 'Field Trip Release' form in advance of field trip.
