Emergency Preparedness Committee (EPC)

In times of disaster there is no greater tool, no better help, for us as individuals or as a community, than taking the time to prepare before the day goes astray.  The Bothell Campus of Cascadia College and University of Washington Bothell have an Emergency Preparedness Committee made up of leaders from both institutions dedicated to the ongoing improvement of disaster preparedness for our campus community.
