Lines of Authority
Circulation staff is trained to respond to various kinds of emergencies and is the first to be contacted when an emergency occurs. However, policies and procedures have been established which designate then following persons as those who have authority to make major decisions such as closing the building.
The names are listed in the order they are to be called in the event of any major emergency such as fire, power failure, tornado, and bomb threats. If you cannot reach the first person on the list (the Director), continue down the phone list until you reach someone with authority. To see home and cell phone numbers, please go to the Intranet Lines of Authority list (restricted).
