Emergency Management

 The Office of Emergency Management is a unit of the Department of Police Services that is charged with coordinating all activities needed to prepare for and respond to both natural and man-made emergency situations.  The responsibility for a campus emergency management program as required in California State University Executive Order #1056, has been delegated to the Department of Police Services.  The Department is responsible for the implementation and maintenance of an emergency management system program on campus and the development and implementation of programs and projects in emergency planning, training, response and recovery. What is Emergency Management?

Summer 2016 Updates

Dial 9-1-1 to reach us from your cell phone while on campus!

CSUN Police has recently developed the capability to accept 9-1-1 calls directly from cell phones on campus. Please make note of this and look for new Emergency Desk References and Emergency Procedures posters later this summer that reflect this change.

Department Emergency Action Plans

CSUN Emergency Management has recently created a new template for department level emergency action planning. Each CSUN Department should have a plan in place for communication, evacuation, and any unique hazards that may exist in their areas. We are hosting a series of upcoming workshops to assist departments with this planning process:

  • Thursday, July 7th 10-11AM
  • Wednesday, July 27th 2-3PM
  • Tuesday, August 16th 10-11AM

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.

 

Building Evacuation Drills & Building Marshal Training


We have recently developed a plan to ensure that all buildings on campus receive building evacuation drills at least once over the next 18 months, with the goal of establishing 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. We are hosting one upcoming training session, additional will be scheduled for the fall semester:

  • Tuesday, July 26th 2-3PM

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.

Special thanks to the teams at Sequoia Hall, Juniper Hall, Oviatt Library, and University Student Union for conducting our first series of evacuation drills!
