Final Preparations at UVA Health Sciences Library

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Hurricane Irene is expected to track to the east of Charlottesville.  However, just to be sure and not be caught off guard, we have activated these preparedness actions for the weekend:

  • All members of our Service Continuity team have been contacted to see if they are available this weekend.  Backup plans would be made for anyone not available.
  • To ensure accurate response, all members of our Service Continuity team were sent the most recent copy of our Service Continuity Pocket Response Plan.
  • Weekend staff have been briefed about areas of the library to watch for leaks or flooding and reminded where plastic sheeting is located.
  • Our emergency response coordinator will be contacted by weekend staff  if anything weather-related happens.  He will then activate the service continuity plan, if necessary.
