The ReadyGW campaign is designed to educate and empower the GW community to prepare for and respond to emergencies. The goal of the campaign is to involve the community and increase the level of basic emergency preparedness at GW.
The GW Emergency Response Handbook provides action steps on what to do in a variety of situations. Being prepared for different situations makes the GW community better able to response when they happen.
In the event of adverse weather conditions George Washington University may alter its operating status based on the overall concern for the safety and wellbeing of the university community. Members of the university community are expected to understand their responsibilities with respect to changes in the operating status of any GW location.
