The Emergency Management Program at CSUN is a dynamic process that incorporates the Emergency Management Cycle of Mitigation.
Mitigation: Identifying risks and taken action to eliminate or reduce the life and property related to an act that cannot be prevented.
Preparedness: Developing emergency plans, acquiring and preparing of supplies and equipment, training in response and personal preparedness techniques.
Response: Actions taken to effectively contain and resolve the emergency or disaster.
Recovery: The effort to restore life to its previous and social and economic level. Planning, though critical, is not the only component of our program. Personal preparedness and response training, conducting drills, testing equipment and coordinating activities with the community are other important functions.
