Emergency Preparedness

Be Prepared

Emergency Preparedness and response is a shared responsibility and one that Chico State takes seriously. We want our students, faculty, staff and community to be prepared and vigilant when it comes to dealing with any emergency situation.

We encourage you to review and become familiar with the following information before an emergency occurs.

  • Read the University Emergency Response Guide (PDF).
  • Participate in building evacuation drills and know where your building's Emergency Assembly Point (PDF) is located.
  • Sign up for emergency notifications through Chico State Alerts.
  • Watch the Active Shooter Training video below.
  • Complete first aid/CPR training.
  • Be alert to your surroundings. Report unusual circumstances and suspicious persons by calling 9-1-1.

CSU Active Shooter Video

This video outlines the "Run, Hide, Fight" survival method to be used in the case of an active shooter situation. It was produced for the CSU system to help prepare students, faculty, staff and community members for the potential threat of a gunman. The video was produced with input from campus police chiefs throughout the 23 CSU campuses.
