NBTC employees should consult with supervisors about any campus preparations that need to be made, including securing supplies needed to prepare labs, offices, or other work space. Before leaving campus at the end of the day on Wednesday, please take the following steps:

  • Back up all your data in case we lose power. You may use an online cloud storage solution or Microsoft OneDrive for Business from Office365, DropBox, Google Drive, and others.
  • Please guard against flood damage by raising any sensitive equipment off the floor, especially in ground floor offices.
  • Cover all electronic equipment to protect it from any water leakage that may occur as a result of the storm.

Please plan ahead and take no chances with your safety during or after the storm.
