Washington ShakeAlert Education Symposium


Washington ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning Education Symposium

The ShakeAlert® Earthquake Early Warning System can detect an earthquake very quickly and send an alert of imminent ground motion before strong shaking arrives. During the symposium we will  explore and discussed how educational institutions in Washington, Oregon, and California can use ShakeAlert to protect our children and their teachers.

What does this technology mean for Washington schools?

Join us to explore how educational institutions in Washington can use ShakeAlert to protect students, teachers, faculty, and staff, and discuss other ways in which the System can be used in your facilities. Be a part of the conversation.

When:  Tuesday, February 12th, 2019 – 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
