Keeping Everyone Safe

Welcome to Los Angeles! As we begin our 46th International Convention, we wanted to share a few tips about emergency preparedness here in the convention center.  

When you enter the convention center, take a moment to look around and identify the closest exits in case of an emergency.   

Emergency medical assistance is available in the Convention Center. If you’re experiencing a medical emergency, please call 213-765-4605. Emergency Medical Technicians are onsite and will be dispatched to you.   

For that reason, and due to the size of the LACC, we discourage dialing 911 directly to ensure that first responders are given detailed and accurate location information.   

Medical assistance is also available at the First Aid Room, located in the South Lobby by the Pico Boulevard entrance. 

If an emergency happens on the convention floor, please identify your location by the closest state sign or mic number. Notify the closest Sergeant at Arms.  

In a non-medical emergency, you will likely hear an announcement with directions about whether you should remain in the hall or exit the building.   

If the fire alarm sounds, please move calmly to the nearest exit and leave the building.  

If there is an earthquake, cover your head and neck with your arms and crawl under a table if you are near one. Please shelter in place inside the LACC. Stay away from glass. Do not go outside. 

You can find more information on emergency preparedness in the delegates guide and on the convention app. Have a safe, productive, and fun convention!
