UpDate - Vol. 14, No. 14, Page 6 December 8, 1994 Tune in for weather reports If snow and ice storms arrive in the Delaware Valley, University employees and students should listen to local radio stations for news of late openings, early closings or cancellations at the University. Channel 2 on the UDTV cable system also will carry any weather-related announcements. Those individuals who miss radio announcements can call 831-2000 to receive weather-related information. In addition, early closing information will be presented to the campus community in system announcements on MVS and UNIX e-mail. Each department also will be contacted by Employee Services using a telephone tree. Members of the campus community are asked not to call the Department of Public Safety so that telephone lines there can remain open for emergency calls. According to Maxine Colm, vice president for employee relations, the University's policy is to remain open whenever possible during extreme weather conditions. If no formal announcement of closing, late opening or early dismissal is made, employees who decide for personal reasons not to report or to leave early must take vacation time or leave without pay. Employees in essential positions are required to report to work during extreme weather conditions. These employees will be designated by their directors in Dining Services, Facilities Management, Housing and Conference Services, Student Health Services, Public Safety and Information Technologies. For additional information on the extreme weather policy, employees should contact their department supervisors. Radio stations in the Newark vicinity advised of emergency closing bulletins by the University include: WVUD-91.3 fm; WSTW-93.7 fm; WJBR-99.5 fm and 1290 am; WDEL- 1150 am; WNRK-1260 am; WILM- 1450 a.m.; and WSER-1550 am.
