Emergency Information

Pepperdine University takes emergency preparedness seriously and has a comprehensive plan for every conceivable type of emergency. The University Emergency Blog functions as an informational blog for the University during emergencies. Information and decisions affecting the University community are posted on this site in real time by the EOC. The Web page also lists best practice instructions for community members for incidents ranging from personal medical emergencies to earthquakes, fires, and power outages. All faculty, staff, and students should review these best practices prior to an actual event to understand how best to be prepared.
