Emergency Preparedness

Preparing for a Disaster

Emergencies can happen at any time: Natural disasters. Technology-related disasters. Man-made disasters such as explosions or bomb threats. Being prepared with the knowledge and skills to respond effectively to these emergencies can make the vital difference between becoming a victim and protecting yourself and the people around you. Your UCSF Police Department has taken important steps to help you obtain the information and skills needed for effective emergency preparedness.

The UCSF Safe app is another way for faculty, staff, and students to get timely emergency information, news, and instructions.  

  • Supports WarnMe messages and emergency tweets @ucsf_police

Emergency Action Plan

All campus departments and their affiliated sites are required to prepare an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) -UC READY. This plan outlines your department’s preparedness measures and priority actions during emergencies, from small incidents to citywide disasters.
