What We Do

SBCC Emergency Services is committed to the protection of life and property during the event of a major disaster on or around our three SBCC campuses (Main, Wake and Schott).  Campus Security is the primary responder to most emergencies on campus. Working with Security, the emergency services team will communicate information to the campus community as necessary. 

The majority of the emergencies that take place on campus are medical which security coordinates with Fire & Ambulance.  Santa Barbara Police will respond to all violent incidents including an active shooter on campus.

 If 911 is called regarding a medical, dangerous or violent emergency it is important to ALSO call Campus Security Emergency, ext 2400 from a campus phone or (805) 730-4200.  Campus Security will help direct emergency responders to the location of the incident. 

In the event of a major disaster, the District will activate the Emergency Operation Center (EOC) for the coordination, communication and the integration of local state and federal assets necessary to save lives, protect property and public health.
