It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Cal Poly Pomona, Office of Emergency Management (EM) website, a starting place for information and resources for emergency management/preparedness, whenever you need it. Our goal is to ensure that the emergency management information you need is updated, easy to locate and understand.
We are proud of our emergency management programs and look to enhance our programs, to ensure the campus community is as prepared as possible for an emergency, or catastrophic event.
Our job in the Office of EM is to assist Cal Poly to be a great and safe place of education and work. We have a great Emergency Management team and partner with a fantastic team of campus Building Marshals & Floor Captains. These employee volunteers, do their very best to ensure the building occupants, of their respective building are provided with great resources, and are prepared for an emergency.
We appreciate you visiting our website and look forward to working with you, as EM partners.
