Western Washington University to test its earthquake preparedness
The Bellingham Herald
Western Washington University plans to test its capability to quickly and effectively respond to an earthquake during a drill Wednesday, Oct. 27, that also will involve a test of its emergency steam whistle and notification system known as Western Alert. Western employees and students will participate in the on-campus exercise. Participants will simulate the evaluation of damage to the campus, and the communication of WWU’s situation to the community’s emergency operations center.
