Personal Emergency Preparedness — Do members of your family know the safest and most dangerous places in your home during a disaster or an emergency?  Do they know where to meet if they are separated?  Do they know how and when to evacuate?  Emergencies and disasters can strike quickly and without warning and in this session you will receive expert advise on how to prepare and respond in the event of an emergency. Do you have a financial emergency plan?  These essential tips can prepare you to be ready in the event of a disaster or emergency and are covered in a series of workshops available this Fall and held in the Department of Police Services training room on the second floor.  Select the workshop to learn more and register as a member of the CSUN community.  Faculty and staff may register via CSUN's Employee Learning & Training site via the myNorthridge Portal or the link below:
