Great Washington ShakeOut
On 10:17 a.m. on October 17, the Central Washington University community, and thousands of other Washingtonians will "drop, cover, and hold on" in the Great Washington ShakeOut.
Major earthquakes can happen anywhere in Washington. The ShakeOut is a chance for residents to practice protecting themselves and to become prepared. The goal is to prevent a major earthquake from becoming a personal catastrophe. Why is a “drop, cover, and hold on” drill so important? People may only have seconds to protect themselves in an earthquake before strong shaking or falling objects incapacitate them.
In conjunction with the ShakeOut, CWU’s geological sciences department is hosting a panel discussion, moderated by Professor Anne Egger, about “Reducing the Shake-up: What We Need to Know to Build Resilient Communities” at 7:00 p.m. on October 16 in Hertz Hall. CWU Professors Pamela McMullin-Messier, sociology; Tim Melbourne, geological sciences; and Carlo Smith, supply chain management will talk about the various aspects of what would happen when—not if— a major earthquake strikes the Pacific Northwest. This presentation is free and open to the public.
The discussion is sponsored by the Cascadia Hazards Institute, which is focused on improving understanding and awareness of the hazards inherent for those living within a dynamic, tectonic environment.
Central will use the ShakeOut to test CWU Alert!, Central’s emergency alert system.
CWU Alert! combines the technologies of text messaging, e-mail, and telephone messages to be sent instantly to campus community subscribers whenever there is a campus emergency. CWU Alert! is immediately activated when an incident poses an imminent threat to the safety of the community.
CWU Convert from Quarters to Semesters Survey/Input
ASCWU-BOD Wants Your Input!
Central is considering converting from quarters to semesters, and the ASCWU-BOD is providing students with the chance to share their input on the matter. The BOD will send out a survey via email to all CWU students Oct. 9, which will stay open until midnight on Oct. 27. Students should be sure to check their email for the survey and respond as thoughtfully and honestly as possible. Don’t let your opinion go unheard!
