The Medford 549c School District recently installed ShakeAlert-powered technology in all district buildings. When an earthquake is detected, a pre-programmed announcement will be delivered automatically by intercom. By giving 14,000 students time to Drop Cover Hold On before they feel shaking, ShakeAlert could save lives when the next big earthquake hits.
As the first school district in Oregon to be powered by ShakeAlert, Medford sets a great example for others in the state.
