Dear SSU Students,

We strongly encourage all students who are still on campus to leave as soon as possible. We are NOT under evacuation at this time, but the weather conditions are changing rapidly. If you have a way to leave campus safely and get to a safe place, please do so now.

If we have to evacuate later, you will have to leave on the official buses. You will NOT be allowed to drive your cars.

Before leaving, CHECK OUT with your CSA so we know where you are.

Classes and University business remain suspended until Monday, October 16, 2017.

For questions or concerns regarding the fires, please call (707) 664-4391 or (707) 664-4390. For emergencies call 911. Please do not call University Police unless you need a police officer. Please continue to check sonoma.edu for ongoing updates as the situation unfolds.

Please continue to put safety first,

Joyce Lopes, Incident Commander

Sonoma State is NOT being evacuated at this time, but students who choose to remain on campus should pack a bag to be ready should evacuation be necessary.

We have created a page of Frequently Asked Questions for students and employees. It is available at https://news.sonoma.edu/article/sonoma-complex-fire-faq and will be updated as questions and answers come in.

Many members of the Seawolf community have lost their homes. We are working on creating a donation website to help Sonoma State students, faculty and staff affected by the fires. A link to donate will be provided as soon as possible.

Classes and University business have been cancelled until Monday, October 16. Counseling and Psychological Services will be available for students in Student Center 3020 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m Wednesday-Friday.

Cellular and internet service has been spotty in the area. Santa Rosa’s KSRO radio (1350 AM and 103.5 FM) is broadcasting continuous, up-to-date coverage of the Sonoma County fires.

The situation in Sonoma County remains dynamic, so please continue to put safety first.

For questions or concerns regarding the fires, please call (707) 664-4391 or (707) 664-4390. For emergencies call 911. Please do not call University Police unless you need a police officer.

Please continue to put safety first,

Our Harm Prevention team at our headquarters have been on top of ensuring chapters have implemented their crisis plans for all of these hurricanes, the Las Vegas shooting and now the wildfires. It's been a tough fall. Lots of prayers. Lots of donations to various disaster funds.

My daughter, a Gamma Phi, is in Santa Rosa. Thus far, she's southwest of the fires and doing okay.

I've been frantic the last three days.

Glad to hear your daughter is safe.

I have several friends and family in the affected areas and some have been spared while others have not. Right now it's a waiting game.
