12 15 ELEMENTS OF A LIBRARY AT A HIGH STATE OF READINESS 1.Response station 2.One-page Service Continuity Plan updated quarterly 3.Shelter locations (tornado, shooter, HAZMAT) 4.Communication plan that incorporates redundancy of communication (such as what to do if cell phones don’t work) and procedures for updating website, Facebook, and/or Twitter. Situation reporting.

13 SITUATION REPORT (MARCH 6, 2013) Please remember to dial 924-SNOW tomorrow morning before heading out to work. If the University is closed, all non-essential staff should not report to work. Essential staff will communicate with Tony, who will be communicating with Gretchen. Due to the many uncertainties of this storm, it's hard to tell at this time what conditions will be like during the morning commute. Most of the forecasts I've seen show snow throughout the day, so even if we can open the library we may be in an early closing scenario. However, we'll have to let it play out and make adjustments along the way. The Service Continuity Team (SCT) and essential services staff are now on stand-by. Essential services staff from the standpoint of staffing the library and the SCT from the standpoint of keeping our core services available from their homes. Since there is the potential for power outages, Bart will coordinate the SCT. If you are on the SCT and you lose power during business hours, please contact Bart. Bart will then notify a backup, if one is available. David Moody will be handling messages on the library's website, and will be in communication with our social media maven, Kimberly. Therefore it is essential that David is made aware of any changes to our hours. Questions? Please let me know.
