    • Stop whatever you’re doing
    • Turn off, or close the container of anything potentially hazardous if you can
    • Grab your personal possessions quickly
    • DO NOT WAIT! Walk to the nearest exit
    • If your nearest exit is blocked, move immediately to another exit
    • If you can’t walk to evacuation, consider the following:
      • Ask for assistance
      • If help is not available, go to the nearest stairwell (preferably exterior) that has doors that close and can isolate you from the interior of the building.
      • Tell a Building Marshal that you are in need of assistance or call 911 to notify CSUF PD.

Business Continuity Plan

Each Plan Must Consider:

  • PLANNING PERSONNEL:  Who in your department is responsible for coordinating the planning process?
  • IDENTIFYING ESSENTIAL FUNCTION:  What is your department's essential function and who is responsible for keeping this updated?
  • IDENTIFY PRIMARY FUNCTIONS, then determine their priority, how long you could operate without this function, who is dependent upon this function and what departments have function upon which YOUR DEPARTMENT depends?
  • DELEGATION OF AUTHORITY:  What is the line of authority in your department, what limitations on delegation exist?  This is often listed by position/title.
  • FACILITIES:  Identify ALL of your department's facilities and their essential functions.  This is vitally important if you would have to temporarily move operations to another location.
  • PERSONNEL AND FUNCTION:  What essential functions do your department's staff perform and is telecommuting or on-line teaching a possibility?
  • VITAL RECORDS MANAGEMENT: List your department's vital records, where and how they are kept and who is responsible for their update and/or back up.  Consider off-site and/or cloud locations.
  • COMMUNICATIONS:  Determine how everyone in your department will communicate.  Include various ways to plan for a variety of disruptions and include times for business hours and off hours.
  • SERVICE PROVIDERS:  What services do you currently have that are provided by an outside contractor?  How will these services be continued during disasters and are their alternates available?
  • NOTIFICATION:  Who do you want to be notified during disasters?  Make sure these groups are included in the Campus Business Continuity Plan.
  • CONTINUITY STAFF: For situations up to 30 DAYS, your department may only be able to provide essential function.  Determine which individuals are responsible for maintaining or resuming essential functions.  Depending on the situation, these individuals may have to report to an alternate location.


Don't wait for a disaster to strike before you set up your department's continuity plan.
