Wildfire| Employee Assistance Program - LifeMatters

Our thoughts continue to be with those in our campus community who have been impacted by the fires.  As a reminder, our employee assistance program, LifeMatters is available to employees at:  https://www.csun.edu/benefits/lifematters-eap (password = Matadors) or by phone 24 hours a day/7 days a week at 1-800-367-7474.  

Additionally, in response to this critical situation, LifeMatters has launched a News Alert to connect you to the information you need to protect you and your loved ones from harm. The resources provided connect you to the latest updates from emergency management professionals, evacuation guidelines for your area, and maps of the current burn zones, so you can monitor where the fires are burning and which communities may soon fall under threat.
