Training Overview

The UCLA Office of Emergency Management is currently in the process of finalizing our return to campus plans, including for trainings.  We will have new information posted about all of our training opportunities by the beginning of Fall Quarter.  

The UCLA Office of Emergency Management wants to assist all UCLA community members in preparing as best as they can for disasters and other emergencies. We offer customized training presentations and workshops to students, faculty, and staff upon request.


Emergency, Crisis & Disaster Preparedness

Designed for our faculty, staff & graduate students, we dive into earthquake, fire, and active shooter response. What are some of the best practices to follow during incidents and what are the resources available to you?

Earthquake Preparedness & Response Training

This training covers the range of earthquakes that could affect us, from one close to campus along the Santa Monica fault, all the way to the Big One. It also includes an analysis of the short and long-term impacts on our daily lives that can be expected because of them.

Until Help Arrives

Trauma is the leading cause of death in Americans under age 46. Life-threatening (traumatic) injuries require immediate action to stop someone from dying. Those nearest to someone with life-threatening injuries are best positioned to provide the first care before professional first responders arrive. This 3-hour training focuses on the most essential actions, including moving someone away from ongoing danger, stopping life-threatening bleeding, positioning the injured so they can breathe, keeping them warm, and providing comfort. Note that this class will not cover stopping bleeds as in depth as our “Stop the Bleed” class listed below. 

Active Shooter Training

This training covers in much detail how to best respond to an active shooter incident on and off-campus: How do you recognize signs of potential violence around you? How can you protect yourself during an active shooter incident? And what can you expect to happen after a shooting has taken place?

Stop the Bleed

Launched in October of 2015 by the White House, Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. Taught by medical professionals, this 2-hour training will empower you to treat severely bleeding wounds and blood loss.

Active Shooter/Stop the Bleed Combo

This training covers the same material and practice as Stop the Bleed listed above along with a 30-minute presentation on procedures to follow during an active shooter incident.
