Safety Alert: EXTREME WEATHER

(posted 12/11/2014 @ 5:15pm)

 

Dear LMC Community,

As you are aware, there has been a large storm that came through the area today, Thursday, December 11. The majority of the rainfall and high winds have come and gone, but they do expect intermittent rain continuing through Friday.

We recommend that you provide extra travel time to get to the campus during the storm. Our classes and finals will be held as scheduled and services will be available during open hours. Although we don't anticipate a problem, there is a possibility of a power outage. We recommend you bring a flashlight with you as an added safety measure. We continue to monitor the situation and will post updates as necessary.

 

IF WE NEED TO ISSUE ANOTHER ALERT, we will:

  • Post it on the LMC homepage (even if the power goes out, a page should come up) at www.losmedanos.edu. We plan on having access to update this page throughout any incident should there be one.
  • Post updates on the LMC Facebook page and twitter page.
  • Send emergency text messages to all employees and to students who submitted their cell phone number for emergency communications when they registered for classes. For those without text-enabled phones, you will receive a voice message.

 

IF YOU SEE SOMETHING THAT IS UNSAFE AROUND CAMPUS, alert Campus Police: 925-439-1505 or the emergency number: 925-473-7333.
