EUGENE, Ore. (KMTR) -- The Great Oregon Shakeout is coming up Wednesday, October 18 and the University of Oregon's Emergency Preparedness team built activities around the event running all week.
Tuesday, a Preparedness Fair set up outside the student union on campus, offering students information on how to protect themselves in all kinds of disasters.
Organizers wanted to include some fun events to get students interested. Three teams participated in an Iron Chef-style cook-off using non-perishable ingredients that would likely be found in an emergency kit.
Thursday morning, UO students will participate in the Shakeout and the school will also test its emergency notification system.
