In the event of an imminent on-campus flood, the extent and time of a flood warning will largely dictate the course of action. University of the Pacific's Flood Plan provides guidelines and establishes protocols to offices and departments for an organized response to a flood.

Initial Contact Response:

  1. Upon notification of a potential flood by the San Joaquin County Office of Emergency Services, one of the co-chairs of the Pacific Alert Team will activate the Team and monitor the situation and initiative flood response plans. If a flood were to occur, the President (or her/his designee) will decide if the campus is to be evacuated, the length of the campus evacuation/closure, and when classes and normal University operations will resume.
  2. Once a decision has been made to evacuate or close the campus, notification will be sent to University community via Pacific Connect (e-mail, voice mail, and text), campus IP phones, e-news, the University emergency website, and an e-mail sent to the entire University.
  3. Regularly check the University's Emergency website ( for updates and information about when the campus will reopen. Do NOT return to campus until informed to do so via the emergency website.
