Emergency Preparedness Events
Preparing for emergencies takes practice. At CSUF we strive to provide the training and experience necessary to train our faculty, staff and students on what to do whenever the "unforeseen" happens...
Every at the beginning of September, we conduct campus-wide evacuation drills. Know where your evacuation area is from the building you are in. At the Irvine Campus, the evacuation area is in the parking lot.
Drop, Cover and Hold On! drill for about 5 minutes. The Great ShakeOut week will provide much more information on surviving "the Big One." Remember, in a real earthquake, evacuate ONLY if you feel it is unsafe to stay inside, but GENERALLY, it is safer to remain indoors, than to go outside.
SHELTER IN PLACE/VIOLENCE AWARENESS AND PREVENTION:
Every semester there will be a brief campus announcement or a campus activity about the proper response to situations where you must either shelter in place, or run from danger. These exercises help to prevent violence, and become more aware of your surroundings and to report anything suspicious: "See something, Say something."
How we practice: Earthquake Preparedness Exercise
In a major earthquake scenario, we tested the ability of our campus CERT and Medical teams to respond, along with the response of University Police and the activation of our EOC. See more photos here.
