Faculty, Staff & Departments

Have a Plan

Employees, keep with you at all times contact information for your supervisor, co-workers or employees so that in the event of a wide-ranging emergency or even a smaller event like a snow day, you are not searching for contact information. Keep a list of everyday e-mail addresses, websites and phone numbers that you need to communicate with your coworkers during an emergency. If you aren't able to be at work, but are expected, let your supervisor and co-workers (if necessary) know.
