General Emergency Information
In the event of an emergency, building monitors will give instructions to employees and any members of the public in the building, close doors, and provide other required safety and first aid measures, unless otherwise directed by emergency response personnel.
RAVE (Emergency Notification System)
Each member of the CCA community is strongly encouraged to register with Rave Wireless today. It takes only a few minutes; it's completely free; your information is secure and safe; and this CCA-provided service could keep you safe, too. It just may be the most important text message or email you receive, so please sign up now.
How to register
1) CCA students/staff/faculty: Log in to your WebAdvisor account.
2) Select the appropriate tab (e.g., student, staff, faculty).
3) Select Emergency Contacts (this link is located in the User Account section, which is the first group of links on each constituency's page); use the upper section of the "Emergency Contacts" page to designate a cell phone, cell phone provider, home phone, alternative email address, and opt-in to receive SMS or voice alerts to the phone numbers you indicated.
Use the lower section of the page to designate an emergency contact(s) to be notified should you be involved in an emergency or crisis. (Note: International students should list at least one emergency contact who lives within the United States.)
Some emergencies may require evacuation of the building. In this event verbal notice or alarms, or both, will be used to sound the evacuation. Whenever a fire alarm system sounds on either campus, everyone is required to immediately evacuate all buildings and meet at one of the designated two campus assembly areas:
San Francisco Campus
The evacuation assembly area for the San Francisco campus is on 8th Street (between Irwin and Hooper streets). If a terrorist attack occurs (nuclear, biological, or chemical disaster), all persons will be instructed to shelter in place.
The evacuation assembly area for the Oakland campus is the faculty parking lot (corner of Clifton Street and Broadway). If a terrorist attack occurs (nuclear, biological, or chemical disaster), all persons will be directed from the faculty parking lot, down the ramp, and into the first level of the Clifton Hall parking garage.
Do not use elevators.
Never go up a stairway unless specifically directed. (Remember, fire and smoke go up, so you go down. Proceed down the nearest stairway to your assembly area.)*
Remain calm and orderly; walk quickly but do not run.
Follow instructions of emergency personnel.
Give assistance to any disabled persons in the area.
Exit by the nearest stairway. (Again, do not use elevators.)
Go to your assigned reassembly site, outside area away from the building.
Keep roadways and walkways clear for emergency personnel and vehicles. Our designated meeting place is the northeast corner of the faculty parking lot (bike racks) at Broadway and Clifton Street. Once at this location, check in with your manager or supervisor so that you can be accounted for.
Wait for instructions. Do not reenter the building until instructed to do so by managers or emergency personnel.
Become familiar with emergency procedures before an emergency.
Review this plan twice annually to ensure familiarity with: (a) fire extinguisher locations and use; (b) occupancy issues; (c) all emergency exits -- seek a primary and secondary exit point; (d) location of first aid kits; and (e) location of other safety/emergency supplies.
