In order to ensure a smooth shutdown the following steps MUST BE TAKEN:
-All offices must turn off all computers, printers, fax machines, copiers, and all electronic equipment. Also, disconnect this equipment from electrical outlets. Please make sure that this is done at the end of business on Friday, May 8, 2009.
-The College’s Website and email system will shut down at noon on Saturday, May 9, 2009 until power is restored.
-Only emergency lighting will be available in campus buildings.
-Faculty, staff, and students conducting experiments in any campus laboratory are strongly encouraged to power down sensitive equipment if at all possible. Back-up power may be available but cannot be guaranteed under the current conditions.
-In Building 6S any equipment that cannot be powered down should be connected to red emergency power outlets, and any data or settings should be backed up.
We apologize for this inconvenience; however, we need to take these actions and implement these critical repairs.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation. Should you have any questions please contact AVP James Pepe at 718.982.3210.
