Fire Alarms and Earthquakes "All Clear" Signals

 

Fires

In the event that a fire alarm is sounded at one of our campus facilities, the building must be checked to determine that it is safe before students and staff are allowed to re-enter. Only designated employees from the Sheriff's Department, Campus & Parking Services, Building Marshal Program or Maintenance can give the "all clear" signal before the building is reopened for use.

If you know that a fire alarm was tripped accidentally, please immediately contact Campus & Parking Services at (619) 644-7654. Please visit our Emergency Information Page to learn more about Fires.
