Preparedness Checklist

    • Emphasize the importance of having an Emergency Supply Kit - lead by example and make or purchase one for your home.
    • Make an Emergency Plan with your children/family members.
    • Establish multiple methods by which you can contact your children (e.g. phone, email, social media, etc.).
    • Review the campus emergency procedures with your child.
    • Encourage your children to follow campus safety rules.

Your Role During an Emergency

    • Do not panic if you cannot reach your child. Following a large-scale emergency, cell phones do not usually work.
    • Use resources made available by UCI in order to obtain new, up-to-date, information.
      This will include the UCI homepage and UCI Police Facebook page.
    • Unless directed to do so, do not come to campus during an emergency as additional individuals and traffic on campus will inhibit response efforts.
