Yesterday, the School of Law conducted its annual fire drill. The students cooperated beautifully, and our great staff members who serve on the law school’s Emergency Response Team evacuated the building right on schedule.
It is important for the family and friends of our law students to know that Pepperdine is well prepared for emergency situations. Although California is famous for dangers such as wildfires and earthquakes, Pepperdine has excellent policies and procedures in place to respond to potential disasters.
I especially want family and friends to know about the University’s Emergency Information Page, which functions as a blog during emergencies, with the latest updates and decisions posted by the University’s Emergency Operations Committee. These updates could include class cancellations, campus closures, and any instructions to the University community.
In addition, Pepperdine hosts an Emergency Hotline Number at (888) 286-5659. During an emergency, this number is updated with the latest information and decisions of the University’s Emergency Operations Committee.
