Campus Safety
  The University Police Department is a diversified organization that provides professional
  law enforcement, parking and transportation and traffic coordination. A proactive, service-
  oriented agency trained to respond to the needs of the community, they respond to all
  emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Emergency Preparedness
  The SF State campus has historically been a very safe campus. In the event of a major
  emergency, University Police will activate the appropriate elements of the campus Emergency

  Preparing in Advance for an Emergency
    Know where the yellow emergency phones, fire exits and stairways are in the buildings where
    you work or research. The phones call directly into University Police.
    Know our University Police emergency numbers: 911 for an immediate emergency; 415.338.7200
    for a less immediate matter.
    Use your intuition: If you have a concern for your safety or the safety of others, call 911.

  Communication During an Emergency
    Building alarm systems:
    If you hear an alarm, leave the building immediately. To help persons with mobility disabilities,
    take them to the nearest stairwell and notify University Police.
    Building Voice Announcement Systems:
    Many of the residence halls and academic buildings have a voice announcement system on
    every floor linked to the alarm system. The announcement system will be used to give you
    information and instructions.
    Building Coordinators:
    Every building has a safety coordinator trained to help with building evacuation. Orange vests
    identify building coordinators.
    On our compact central campus, loudspeakers atop police vehicles are an effective way of
