Do's & Dont's + Preventative Resources

Isla Vista is home to a unique landscape that while beautiful, can pose many dangers to its residents. The IVCSD has compiled a list of do's and don'ts for residents as they reside and engage in activities around the bluffs. Above are some resources you can utilize if an event becomes a safety risk. Please keep these tips in mind as each and every person has the ability to be an active bystander and save a life.

When signs of cliff erosion occur we urge residents to report the incidents to the respective parties in order to prevent potentially dangerous accidents from occurring.
