The Emergency Preparedness and Business Continuity Program at Caltech aims to create a disaster resilient Institute by providing education in emergency procedures and personal preparedness as well as facilitating the development of continuity plans within all Divisions and Departments on campus.


The goal of this website is to provide ongoing information about emergency and continuity planning initiatives on campus, upcoming training opportunities and act as a repository of key resources, templates and tools.


Thank you for taking the time to prepare now for an emergency. Our level of preparedness now will dictate how quickly and comfortably we can recover after a disaster strikes.
