These seminars are available to all UW Faculty, Staff and Students, and will be offered around the Seattle campus on a monthly basis February – September 2018.

Topics discussed include:

  1. An overview of UW Emergency Management, and the services we offer
  2. The earthquake risk specific to Puget Sound
  3. Personal Preparedness basics
  4. Earthquake “response” at the University of Washington
  5. Resources for more information/help
