From: Lynne C. Schaefer, Vice President for Administration and Finance
Winter is upon us. So that we can all be prepared, this would be a good time to review UMBC’s Inclement Weather Procedures, posted at www.umbc.edu/facultystaff/inclementweather.html.
Note there are important changes to parking procedures during inclement weather, noted in the parking section. Also, a phased snow removal plan, with campus map showing the general approach used to clear campus roadways, parking lots and walkways, has been developed and can be found at www.umbc.edu/fm.
During inclement weather events, you will find up-to-date information posted on the UMBC homepage and myUMBC. The campus hotline phone number is 410-455-6789 or ext. 5-6789 from on campus, and will be updated as situations change during such events as well.
I also encourage you to sign up for E2Campus, an emergency alert text-messaging system that will permit the University to notify you regarding any campus-related emergency (such as potential campus safety hazards or campus closures due to weather). The system is compatible with mobile phones, Blackberries, “smart phones,” satellite phones, e-mail, wireless PDAs and pagers. Normal text-messaging rates apply. There are no additional charges. Please sign up for this important service today at my.umbc.edu/go/alerts.
