Fresno Pacific University is a rapidly growing four-year university located in southeast Fresno, in California’s Central Valley. Like most university campuses, Fresno Pacific has an open, welcoming campus environment with hundreds of students and university employees on campus at any given time.

The university’s Department of Campus Safety, headed by Chief Gary Mejia, operates 24/7 to help ensure the safety of its students, staff, and visitors. One of the department’s vital responsibilities is emergency preparedness. To maximize the department’s ability to respond rapidly and effectively in a crisis, Mejia and his staff knew they needed much faster, more comprehensive communications capabilities. Mejia and his team turned to Metis Secure.
