Weather Notification Procedures

With winter approaching, this important reminder is being issued to all faculty, students, and staff on weather and other emergencies.
In the event of a cancellation or delay in classes or activities, pertinent information and
announcements are distributed in the following ways:
■ Campus-wide e-mail
■ Home page of the FSC website
■ Mobile website for smartphones (bookmark farmingdale.edu)
■ The college’s social media accounts: facebook.com/farmingdale, and Twitter.com/farmingdalesc for updates
■ Electronic signs at campus entrances
■ News media—especially local radio stations such as WALK (97.5) and KJOY (98.3), and TV stations such as FIOS 1 and News 12 Long Island.

Please do not call University Police for the status of classes or the campus. It is vital to
keep the University Police phone lines available for true emergencies. Likewise, do not call
administrative departments or the campus operators.
If you have specific questions, contact your supervisor. Some offices also maintain phone chains; your department head will know if this additional communication channel is still being used in your department.
In addition, it is recommended that you sign up for RAVE, which distributes text messages on weather and other emergencies, and SUNY-Alert, which will call your designated phone with a recorded message on class cancellations or delays. To sign up for these services:
■ For RAVE, please visit www.getrave.com and select Farmingdale State College. Use your
Farmingdale user ID and password to enter the site. Please follow the directions on the
screen to enroll.
■ For SUNY-Alert, please visit the University Police webpage at www.farmingdale.edu/
university-police/. Announcements on classes are made only if there is a cancellation or delay. Otherwise, classes are in session.
However, as weather events evolve and circumstances change, it is important to keep checking the website, news media, your e-mail account, and the other communication venues for updates. Even if classes are cancelled, administrative and academic offices are customarily open, as only the Governor can order a complete closing of the campus. If offices are open, then staff who do not report to work must inform their supervisors and charge their accruals.
