August 22, 2008

Due to power outages and
weather conditions, Director Connie Patrick has canceled training for
the remainder of the day at the Glynco Campus this Friday, Aug. 22. 

There are approximately
five power poles down near building 681 that have cut off power to that
building and blocked off portions of the road. This situation is being
worked on by Georgia Power and the Facilities Management staff.

All nonessential
personnel may leave their duty stations; however, all staff members
should contact their respective supervisors regarding potential duty

Students should return
to their dorms. Buses will begin running at 2:30 pm to transport
students to their respective dorms. The dining facility will be open
with possibly limited options.

All staff and students
are asked to leave through the Glynco front gate, except those
personnel who are located in building 681 who should leave through the
gate nearest the building due to the roads being blocked.

It is anticipated that all personnel will return to work on Monday, August 25.

Personnel and students
should also continue monitoring weather related information sources and
the FLETC Operational Status Number at 1-800-793-5382 or 1-800-79FLETC.
