14th Annual Zone Crew/CSAR Meeting

On Wednesday, January 11th the UCI Emergency Services Division hosted the 14th Annual Zone Crew/CSAR Meeting in Pacific Ballroom D of the Student Center. This meeting rendered the largest turnout yet with 208 participants and a large CSAR member presence. Featured speakers included Detective Roland Chiu of the UCI Police Department and Isaac Straley Chief Information Security Officer at UCI. Detective Chiu presented on his work with the Orange County Intelligence Assessment Center (OCIAC) as the Higher Education Liaison and Mr. Straley presented on the cyber security risks and prevention initiatives taking place at UCI. The latter topic was very timely and relevant as Anne Widney, Emergency Manager, revealed the results of the recently updated campus Hazard Vulnerability Analysis (HVA); the results of which placed cyber risk as a new Top 5 campus threat.

In addition to the two keynote speakers, Anne Widney also shared some lessons learned that resulted from the UCLA murder-suicide incident last summer as well as discussing the major accomplishments of Emergency Services Division over the past year and what lies ahead in 2017.

The Zone Crew and CSAR programs, among others on campus, are vital to the preparedness mission of the university and it’s a continued pleasure to observe such a growing interest and spirit of volunteerism by these groups year after year. UCIPD and the campus thanks you for your time and effort to ensure the continued resiliency of the university.
