There are no emergencies or emergency communications in effect for the UC Berkeley campus. If an emergency occurs, the latest information will be posted on the UC Berkeley NewsCenter. This backup emergency website, hosted offsite, will be updated only if service to the main UC Berkeley information websites (berkeley.edu and newscenter.berkeley.edu) is disrupted.
The campus emergency sirens are tested at noon on the first Wednesday of each month. At all other times, when you hear the sirens you should:
- Shelter in place
- Shut doors and window
- Seek instructions and information (see left)
