Emergency Preparedness at Walla Walla University

Walla Walla University is dedicated to the safety of everyone on its campus.  Though it is impossible to guarantee that no emergency will ever take place on the WWU campus, it is possible to take preventative measures and to prepare those on the campus to deal with any emergency situation that should arise. 

WWU has taken several steps to ensure that the university campus is as safe as it can possibly be.  These steps include organizing an Emergency Planning Committee, which oversees the planning and implementation of emergency preparedness methods. 

A large amount of information is available about the safety measures at WWU.  See below for more information.
