Call for Volunteer Building Marshals

Building marshals play a vital role in the evacuation process on campus. We are still actively recruiting building marshal assistance in numerous buildings on campus. The Cal State San Marcos building marshal program helps to facilitate the safe evacuation of campus buildings and assist emergency responders. This program is staffed by campus employees who work in the individual classrooms, offices and buildings throughout campus.

We have two upcoming building marshal trainings: Oct. 25 at 9 a.m. and Oct. 30 at 1 p.m., both in the University Police building. Feel free to join us if you’re interested and want to see what the program is about.

Building marshals are responsible for:

  • Assisting in the complete evacuation of a building.
  • Assisting University Police in preventing re-entry by non-emergency responders until the building has been deemed safe.
  • Reporting injured or trapped persons to emergency responders.

If you are interested in volunteering, please email Robert Williams at rwilliam@csusm.edu.
