Wildfire Season Weather Impacts

Wildfire Season Weather Impacts

UC Davis encourages all departments, students and employees to prepare for potential summer-weather impacts to operations, research and teaching, and employee well-being.

Safety is a Shared Responsibility at UC Davis 

Officials from Facilities Management and Safety Services actively monitor extreme fire-weather conditions (e.g., winds over 45 mph) and active fires throughout the state (e.g., whether they’re moving toward critical electrical infrastructure). This webpage highlights the four main impacts for which UC Davis is preparing, and you can help.

Plan While It’s Calm

UC Davis will rely upon the WarnMe notification system to provide timely updates in an emergency, and sometimes when a severe threat exists (i.e., red flag warning). Check your information to make sure it’s current. Likewise, departments can begin identifying “designated employees” so staff have some expectations if the campus begins moving toward a closure.
