On Friday, September 25th, Staff Assembly announced its partnership with the Office of Fire Safety & Emergency Planning to offer Earthquake Preparedness training to USC staff, students, and faculty.

While the pandemic is ongoing, it is important to keep yourself safe from other emergencies that can occur such as earthquakes, fires, power outages, and other emergencies that can and will occur. These emergencies and disasters can further compound the impacts of COVID-19. To help you prepare for earthquakes and other emergencies, the Office of Fire Safety & Emergency Planning is pleased to offer special training on Earthquake preparedness. As we work remotely and attend school online, the emphasis of this training will be on preparing your home and family.
