Get Prepared

Knowing what to do, where to go, and the resources available in the event of an emergency or natural disaster is key to staying as safe as possible. Emergencies can happen quickly and unexpectedly so it is critically important to prepare in advance by reviewing the information on these webpage(s).

Stay Informed

WarnMe is UC Berkeley’s Alerting and Warning System and how you may hear from the campus about significant emergencies and receive updates until a situation is resolved. By default, every Berkeley email address is automatically enrolled. To also receive WarnMe emergency alerts via SMS/text message, you must register your mobile phone number. Typically, an initial WarnMe message will contain basic information and any follow-up WarnMe messages may be more detailed.

Also consider signing up for Alameda County Alerts, the Alerting and Notification system for Alameda County and the City of Berkeley.
