University to hold flood meeting

Jun 4, 2009  

The university will hold a meeting on Monday, June 8, to discuss the ways departments can best prepare for possible floods.  All employees, particularly those working in buildings in low lying areas of campus, are encouraged to attend.

The program will be in Baker University Center 240 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. and will feature speakers from Safety and Risk Management, Facilities Maintenance and the Geology department. According to Emergency Programs Coordinator Jill Harris, the educational session is valuable because employees will learn how to prepare proactively for potential floods.

"Departments need to create and implement action plans," Harris said. "They need to begin working on those sooner rather than later."

Employees will learn about the hydrology of the Hocking River, how Facilities and Maintenance would respond to a flood and the soon-to-be approved revisions to the university flood policy. Contact information will also be gathered so that notifications can be made in the event of a flood watch or warning.
