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 building 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 four upcoming building marshal trainings, all of which will be held in the University Police Building. Feel free to join us if you’re interested and want to see what the program is about. The sessions are:

  • Feb. 10 at 1 p.m.
  • Feb. 13 at 1 p.m.
  • Feb. 19 at 9 a.m. 
  • Feb. 25 at 9 a.m. 

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 to schedule a date for training.

We are looking for volunteers in all buildings. However, the buildings listed below greatly need volunteers:

  • University Hall
  • Academic Hall
  • Science Hall 1
  • Science Hall 2
  • Extended Learning Building
