Windstorms severe enough to cause damage may occur at infrequent intervals and may be accompanied by torrential rains.
At the time of warning of impending severe winds, property and equipment not properly anchored should be moved inside a building or tied down. Close windows.
The best protection in severe winds is in permanent buildings. As a result, steps will be taken to ensure the safety of students/personnel within buildings rather than to evacuate.
Time permitting, students in temporary structures at Malibu will be moved to a permanent structure. Insofar as is practicable, Public Safety and Emergency Response Team (ERT) members will follow up on warnings by making a room-to-room inspection of all temporary structures.
Immediately after the cessation of severe winds, Facilities Management & Planning and Public Safety will inspect the Malibu campus for damage. The building maintenance personnel for other California campuses will do likewise.
