Building Evacuation Drills & Building Marshal Training
Building evacuation drills will be scheduled for every building on CSUN's campus to occur before July 1, 2017. If your building has not had a drill since April 2016, please reach out to schedule your preferred time today. Our goal is to establish drills as an annual occurrence. Planning building evacuation drills requires the support of the departments and occupants in each building, this includes the designation of Building Marshals and Principal Building Marshals for every building on campus. Building Marshals are required to attend a general, basic training session before building specific planning and training can begin. We encourage you to volunteer to assist with evacuations as a Building Marshal and/or to assist with recruiting additional Building Marshals in your area. For more information on the Building Marshal Program please click here. Upcoming training dates:
- Tuesday, February 14th 12-1PM
- Thursday, April 13th 12-1PM
All sessions will be facilitated by Emergency Preparedness Manager Jenny Novak and will take place in DPS 212. Registration is available through the myNorthridge portal under Employee Learning & Training.
