Shake Out. Don’t Freak Out.

The annual Great Shakeout event is quickly approaching! October 15th, 2015 at precisely 10:15 am, the University of Washington will join organizations around the world in practicing the “Drop, Cover, Hold” earthquake safety mantra. Participating is a great way to be prepared to survive and recover quickshakeout_fixedly from a real earthquake.

Departmental participation at the UW is voluntary, however many departments plan on using their local A/V system to notify employees as if it were a real event. Personal registration and participation can include notification on your smartphone.

Visit the ShakeOut Website for more information, or to register.
