Viacom Emergency Information
As you all are aware, there are a number of wild fires burning in and around the Southern California area. While our offices are open for business and not in any physical danger, we expect that some of you may be in or near the fire areas and need to ensure the safety or your homes and family. In addition, the commute for many may be particularly challenging, with a number of freeway closures, sections of the 210, 118, 5 and 405. For those who anticipate that the fire conditions will make it difficult to commute into the office, we recommend that you connect working with your supervisors to make alternative work arrangements.
For immediate and future reference, you can also find up-to-date information on the status of our offices and schedule by dialing 1-866-77VIACOM (866-778-4226) or visiting http://emergency.viacom.com (no www). We update these sites on a regular basis to be your source of current information particularly during safety related situations. The Paramount Global Operations Center is also monitoring the fires. They can be reached at Emergency: (323) 956-3333, Non-Emergency: (323) 956-5155, ViacomGlobalSecurity@Viacom.com
Finally, Cal Fire also provides updated information on the status of the fire and evacuations at https://fire.ca.gov/. Also, additional information can be found at our Viacom Global Operations Center – Southern California Wild Fire Coverage website.
If you have any questions, please contact your immediate supervisor or HR representative.
