In the event of emergency conditions (i.e.,storm, utility failure, fire, etc.) which seriously hamper the functioning of the College, the President may declare an emergency and announce an immediate or anticipated cancellation of classes and other scheduled events, the closing of College offices, and the discontinuance of normal maintenance operations. For reasons that are apparent or may arise, the services of some employees may be required during emergency situations. These persons will be notified as quickly as possible.
