Emergency Procedures & Preparation

"It is the safest of assumptions that a
crisis looms on the horizon."

Fresno State Police officers are trained for all hazard emergency response, including the highly dynamic active shooter tactics.

We have regional emergency services relationships to facilitate large scale rapid responses.

We partner in interoperable communications with all regional law enforcement, fire, and medical services.

Our campus has a structured crisis communications plan to provide potentially life saving information during an all hazard emergency. This plan is under regular, ongoing review to provide our campus community with the most current information.

Campus Community

In the event of an emergency, everyone in the campus community becomes a partner in the response.

During an emergency, prior planning, preparation and practice will guide you. Experience has taught us that one does not always rise to the occasion, but most often will settle to the level of one's training. Planning and preparation saves seconds, seconds save lives.

"My priority is to give the community in the immediate presence of violence or danger, the best chance to survive."
