Faculty & Staff
Supporting Faculty and Staff
UC Davis strives to support faculty and staff through Worklife and Wellness programming, which enables staff to be successful at work, school and home. At the UC Davis Fire Department, we are committed to providing you a safe workplace, fire and life safety education, and events that reach out to faculty, staff and their families.

Our commitment to UC Davis faculty and staff is evident in the comprehensive variety of programs and services we deliver:
The campus’ Public Access AED program is managed by Fire Department administration, and is intended to deploy these life-saving devices across campus, including remote work sites like the Primate Center, Hopkins Service Center, and athletic facilities like the ARC and the campus pools.
UCDFD personnel work closely with Staff Development to support opportunities for staff to gain life safety training, like CPR.
The UC Davis Fire Department participates in numerous annual events that provide outreach and safety education to UCD staff and their families. We host tours at the fire station, and provide opportunities for visitors to inquire about their role in fire safety.

UC Davis will soon see the deployment of a lifesaving smart phone application entitled PulsePoint. The PulsePoint app empowers citizens to provide life‐saving assistance to victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Users are notified if someone nearby is having a cardiac emergency and that may require bystander CPR. The app also directs citizen responders to the location of the closest AED. This app is expected to launch in the UC Davis community in September 2012.
