UW Operations Outlines Recommended Cold Weather Procedures

December 20, 2017

The University of Wyoming Operations department has issued recommendations to ensure safety and security in all buildings during lengthy closures or anticipated periods of extremely cold weather.

The department encourages building occupants to assist with the following measures:

-- Make sure all windows and doors are completely closed, with windows latched.

-- Check sinks and lavatories on exterior walls, and open cabinet doors under sinks.

-- Report any unusually cold areas.

-- Report any wet ceiling tiles.

-- Report any doors or windows that you are unable to close and secure.

-- Watch for icy spots, and use extreme caution when walking and driving.
