Emergency Alerts

Emergency Status

May 6, 10:07am: All Clear. This marks the end of our Active Threat Drill.

May 6, 10 a.m.: Active Threat DRILL ONLY. Secure in place. We will send an all clear after the drill. 

In the event of an active threat, you will be notified using many channels. Use your best judgment to decide whether to Run, Hide, or Fight. If you do not feel you are not able to "run" from danger, secure in place. Turn off lights, close blinds, silence cell phones, blockade doors. Wait for further instruction.

Communication Platforms

In the event of an emergency or college closure, Cascadia will issue communications using the following platforms:

  • UW alert system
  • Cascadia Facebook
  • Cascadia Instagram
  • Cascadia Twitter
  • Cascadia email
  • Home page of Cascadia public website
  • Major TV and Radio new stations


  • Emergencies are considered any event that poses a safety risk to the campus community. For example, the most common uses of the alert will be to communicate when the college is closed due to power outages or inclement weather. Other types of emergencies may include unexpected occurrences such as earthquakes or any unexpected event that poses danger or puts your safety at risk.
  • No, never. We respect your privacy and you will never receive anything except for official UW Bothell/Cascadia emergency communications.
  • Neither Cascadia nor UW Bothell will charge you. However, you are responsible for paying any messaging charges that might be associated with your wireless carrier plan.
