‘Safety should never be compromised:’ Are Washington schools prepared for earthquakes?
Washington's state superintendent admits earthquakes are the biggest casualty risk to students in our schools. But not much is being done in our state especially when you look at what is happening in other West Coast states and British Columbia. Washington is the only state that doesn't have a law or policy on doing seismic upgrades in our school. You can see California, Oregon and B.C. all do structural surveys on schools.
