PGBS Emergency Preparedness

Members of the Pepperdine community should be aware of all of the resources the University has made available regarding emergency preparedness. The Office of Emergency Services, the Department of Public Safety, and the University’s Emergency Operations Committee (EOC), in cooperation with many other departments, work to ensure that Pepperdine is prepared for emergencies when they impact any of the institution’s schools or departments.
