While the California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo ("Cal Poly") campus is just outside of the City of San Luis Obispo, the San Luis Obispo City Fire Department is proud to provide fire, medical, and rescue services to the campus core. Fire Station 2 is the closest fire station to the Cal Poly campus, and calls for emergency service on the campus account for approximately one-quarter of Fire Station 2's calls for service.
In addition to responding to emergencies on the campus, our emergency response personnel spend a great deal of their time studying and walking the many facilities and features of the Cal Poly campus. The University Police Chief and SLO City Fire Chief host and participate in monthly meetings at the campus. During these meetings, line employees and senior leadership from both organizations discuss current and upcoming events, operational enhancements to our shared mission of safety on the campus, and visit different facilities on the campus so our responders have a solid foundation on how the University's programs and processes impact public safety.
