The University Police recommends a number of heightened security and protective measures to the campus community for threat levels “Severe” (Red), “High” (Orange) and “Elevated” (Yellow):
Be aware of your surroundings and report all suspicious persons and activity to UC Police by calling 911. (For example: Conspicuous or unusual behavior; persons taking photographs of buildings or facilities; asking detailed questions about physical security; dressed inappropriately for weather conditions, etc.)
Be aware of, and report suspicious looking packages or abandoned parcels or other items in unusual or high traffic locations to the UC Police. You can review the bomb threat procedures at the web site for UC Berkeley's Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP)
Carry your Cal Photo ID and don’t hesitate to show identification if asked.
If you work in a building with “access control”, do not open doors for people whom you do not know or who do not have their ID. Refer them to the building lobby for screening.
Take personal security precautions, be particularly alert when visiting high profile or high-profile locations, exercise caution when traveling, and take additional precautions at public events. Trust your instincts.
Review emergency preparedness plans such as evacuation procedures and emergency exits in buildings you frequent.
Become familiar with the symptoms of exposure to the various types of biological, radiological, and chemical agents, and what action to take. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's web site - Bio-Terrorism section (www.bt.cdc.gov)
Assemble and maintain a disaster supply kit (e.g. water, nonperishable food, battery powered radio, flashlight, extra batteries and medications) for home and work. This can be the same kit you have for other emergencies. Visit the UC Berkeley Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP) for more information on putting together a disaster supply kit.
