CWU and The 2015 Great Washington ShakeOut

On October 15, 2015, at 10:15 am, the state of Washington will hold its annual "shakeout" event, a statewide earthquake drill. The primary goal is to raise awareness across the state of the potential risks associated with a large earthquake and to help citizens be more prepared to be safe during an earthquake.

The Cascadia Hazards Institute and the department of Geological Sciences are organizing a set of ShakeOut events:

  • October 12-15: Leading school assemblies for elementary and middle school students, teachers, administrators and their families about earthquakes and earthquake preparedness.

  • Thursday, October 15, 10:15 am: Campus-wide earthquake drill.
