In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of the Chief of Police or his designee, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” will be issued. The “Timely Warning” bulletins must be related to a crime that is reportable under the Clery Act or that represents a threat to the campus community, i.e. Murder, Manslaughter, Rape, Arson and Robbery.
The “Timely Warning” bulletins will be emailed to the campus community, posted on the Fresno State Police Department website, posted on exterior doors of campus buildings, including residence halls, and a copy will be given to the Greek Affairs Advisor.
Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to the Fresno State Police Department, 2311 East Barstow Ave. The Chief of Police or his/her designee prior to posting will approve all “Timely Warnings.”
The Chief of the Fresno State Police Department or his designee will implement notification to the campus community upon the confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of the campus community, unless the notification at that time will compromise efforts to contain the emergency. Fresno State Police Department upon report of an emergency will immediately disseminate emergency information to the campus community through the following methods of notification which may include but are not limited to outdoor speakers, voice over IP messages to campus phones, emergency radio station, emergency hotline, building safety coordinators, campus email system for faculty, staff and students, campus websites, and/or portable electronic signboards. Testing of these systems is performed at least on an annual basis. Specific information regarding evacuations can be found at www.fresnostate.edu/emergency. Assembly points are designated for each building, as well as for a campus evacuation. Evacuation drills are completed at least on an annual basis.
