Great UW ShakeOut: Results

The numbers are in!
Our records indicate that 68 departments, for a total of almost 14,000 students, faculty, and staff participated in the 2016 Great UW ShakeOut!
This is out of the over 1.1 million participants statewide, and almost 55 million worldwide. How cool is that?!thank-you

From all of us here at UW Emergency Management, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to practice your response to ground movement. Your safety during an earthquake is our #1 priority! So to know you are taking it seriously, too, means the world to us.

Now, it has also come to our attention that despite our best efforts here at UWEM, some people on our campus did not know about this very important drill… rest assured that we will continue to use every outreach avenue at our disposal in order to reach the largest audience. However, if you have a particular idea or suggestion on how best to reach YOU – please let us know!
