During an Emergency

  • Obtain accurate information from verified sources via Bruins Safe Online, BruinAlert & UCLA Newsroom
  • Do not panic if you cannot reach your child. Following a large-scale emergency cell phones do not usually work
  • Unless directed to do so, do not come to campus during an emergency as additional individuals and traffic on campus will inhibit response efforts
