Being prepared is critical, especially when an emergency or disaster arises. While Campus Safety is available 24/7 to respond to emergencies, preparedness planning is the first step in making sure you are safe and calm during emergencies.
UW Bothell Emergency Management’s goal is to educate students, staff, and faculty about their ongoing role in preparing for emergencies through education and training. UW Bothell coordinates with UW Emergency Management and the City of Bothell to provide direction about specific situations and the appropriate actions to take during an emergency.
