The UW and the ‘Big One’ Will you and your building be ready for the next earthquake?

Check out a recent feature story from the UW’s student newspaper, The Daily, that highlights the recent successes and challenges facing the University of Washington in preparing our institution for the “BIG ONE”…. the major earthquake that is guaranteed to hit Western Washington.  It could happen tomorrow, next year or in 100 years.  We don’t know when, but what is is that for every day we do not experience our major seismic event, we are 1-day closer to it occurring.  Is the UW ready?  Let the facts and our actions be the judge.
