SF State Emergency Preparedness Tips for Faculty & Staff


Natural disasters happen often in California and remind us all that planning and preparation is the best way to stay safe.  Implement these tips now– TO BE READY!


1.  Plan where to meet after a disaster if your home becomes unsafe. Choose two places, one just outside your home and one outside your neighborhood – within walking distance in case transportation is out.

2.  Identify an out-of-area phone contact that can coordinate information as everyone reports their status. Program this number into cell phones and keep the cell phone charger with you.  Text messaging works well too.

3.  Identify two escape routes from your home and practice using them. Call 911 and evacuate if there is fire, smoke or you smell gas.  Maintain working smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.  

4.  Make two disaster kits, storing one in your car. Store the other one in an accessible location, which may be outside. Remember the needs of children, seniors, disabled family, or neighbors, and pets. Include prescription medicines, health insurance, eyeglasses, cash, a radio, batteries, flashlights, a first aid kit, food and water.

5.  Teach family members how to use a fire extinguisher and get first aid, and CPR training. Join Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) in your city or Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) if you live in San Francisco. This training can save lives in a major disaster lasting more than 72 hours!


1.  Update your emergency contact information for the campus alert system athttps://inside.sfsu.edu/portal.

2.  Prepare a personal disaster supply kit to keep at your desk.  Include a first aid kit, flashlight, prescription medicines, comfortable shoes, food and water, and anything else that might be used to save your life.

3.  Keep your work area uncluttered. Remove heavy files above your head and let nothing block your exit.

4.  Work with your Building Coordinator by volunteering for your building’s emergency team. Participate in drills, trainings and evacuations to keep you safe, and learn how to assist injured or disabled colleagues and students.

5.  Know the exits in your classrooms and make sure your students know.  Move away from buildings during drills.

6.  Know where fire extinguishers are located in all the buildings you frequent. Simple instructions on each will allow you to use them within seconds.   

7.  When the earthquake starts, be sure to get under a table if possible and hold on to it or DROP to a squat against a wall away from windows, COVER your head with your hands and HOLD that position until it’s safe to evacuate. Check your surroundings before exiting and report injured or stranded persons to rescuers.

8.  Review the SF State Multi Hazard Plan at:http://www.sfsu.edu/~upd/emergency/presidents_welcome.html.


The California Highway Patrol (CHP) advises you to: 

1.  Turn headlights on during the day if visibility is poor so other drivers can see you; and 

2.  Cut your speed to half the posted limit or less, based on traffic conditions.  Drive defensively and courteously.
