Stay Informed

For up-to-date information about emergencies impacting campus, sign up for UC Berkeley WarnMe, visit the Berkeley News page, and listen to KALX 90.7 FM (UC Berkeley's radio station).

Emergency Responders may post evacuation warnings and orders on Zonehaven so have this site bookmarked as well.

When you hear the campus emergency sirens, stay indoors and sit tight. The sirens are tested at noon on the first Wednesday of each month.

At ALL other times when you hear the sirens:

  • Shelter-in-Place (stay or go inside, shut doors and windows)
  • Visit Berkeley News page, listen to KALX 90.7 FM (UC Berkeley's radio station), and watch for UCB WarnMe alerts
