Today at 10:20 a.m. WOU is participating in the ShakeOut - an international earthquake drill. At 10:20 you'll get a WOU Alert. At that time drop, cover and hold on for two minutes.

Need to adjust your WOU Alert settings? Go into the Portal and click the WOU Alert icon.

The ShakeOut is our chance to practice together how to protect ourselves, and for everyone to become more prepared. The goal is to save lives and prevent disasters from becoming catastrophes.

From Rebecca Chiles, Campus Public Safety director:
Here at WOU, we are committed to becoming better prepared, and we are asking for everyone, at the minimum, to practice "drop, cover, and hold on" at the specified time. It is only a two minute commitment for something that can save your life!

In the meantime, please take the time to educate yourself on basic emergency preparedness. You can find great information, recommendations, resources, etc. on these websites, www.ready.gov/ and www.shakeout.org/oregon/index.html . If you and your family are prepared, you will be in a better position to help others.

The WOU Emergency Operations Team along with President Fuller and his Cabinet will be participating in a functional drill during this time. We will be working through realistic scenarios and testing our response and resources during this drill. This provides us with training, and also learning opportunities for developing strategies to respond effectively to emergencies on campus. We are committed to being a prepared, disaster resilient university.

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the Western Oregon University site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
