Institutional and Personal Readiness
The purpose of this plan is to establish procedures and duties, to promote planning,
and to establish training for the staff and faculty of the Cascadia Community College
& University of Washington Bothell for fire, earthquake, bomb threats, chemical spill,
and other emergency evacuations as required by the Washington Administrative Code
(WAC 296-24-567), and the UW Bothell and CCC Emergency Response Management Plans.
The Bothell Campus of Cascadia Community College and University of Washington Bothell established a joint Emergency Preparedness Committee in 2012 - comprised of leaders from both institutions. The EPC is dedicated to the ongoing improvement of disaster preparedness for our campus community.
Visit Ready.gov for more information about developing your own personal preparedness plan.
Personal readiness can be as simple as knowing the evacuation plan for your home area or keeping safety equipment at the ready - like a whistle and key light. It can be as elaborate as storing supplies at work for overnight stay and stocking the home pantry for a year.
It is equally important that you have a plan for you and your family. For more information visit Who Depends on You.
Help your family, friends, and loved-ones stay informed. Develop an Out of Area Communications Plan. Make sure this Cascadia web page is included in your plan.
