Building Marshals Work to Make Campus Safe
by Pamela McLaren

print

From Dateline (October 9, 2003)

Janan Zonker
Janan Zonker, an analyst programmer in Faculty Affairs and Records, uses the two-way radio that puts her in communication with University Police when the campus has an emergency. Zonker has worked on campus since 1989 and has served as a building marshal for nearly as many years.

Whenever an alarm goes off on campus, various groups of people go into action. One such group, all volunteers, is the building marshals who don bright orange vests and assist with the safe evacuation of university buildings.

The building marshal program was begun about 1988, a year after the Whittier Narrows earthquake. Currently, there are 190 campus members who serve as building marshals.

One such volunteer is Janan Zonker, an analyst programmer in Faculty Affairs and Records. Zonker has worked on campus since 1989 and has served as a building marshal for nearly as many years. Because of this month’s evening evacuation drill and the recent completion of a CSU audit of the campus’s emergency operations, we asked for more information about the building marshal program and its importance to Cal State Fullerton.
