Emergency After-Hours Procedures

After normal business hours emergencies contact Marietta College Police Department at 740.376.3333.

In the event of an after-hours emergency requiring the response of the Physical Plant, the following procedures are in effect:

  1. Definition of an EMERGENCY requiring an after-hours response: hazard with potential for injury; corrective action required to minimize damage to facilities, equipment, or property; loss of critical electrical, water or sanitary service; a hazard to the health of personnel. Loss of a single shower, toilet, or sink where alternative facilities are available or loss of heat when temperatures are above 60F is not normally an emergency.
  2. Only recall personnel for true emergencies that can not wait until the next working day. For the safety of our personnel, it is preferable that emergency work is performed during daylight hours if at all practical.
  3. Only Marietta College Police Department (MCPD) shall initiate after hours recalls. Recalled personnel shall check in and check out with MCPD.
  4. Only MCPD, Faculty, Staff, and Assistant Directors may initiate after hours recalls via MCPD.
  5. MCPD may directly call the trade or staff best able to address the emergency. Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) duty personnel are on call by pager primary) and cell phone (secondary) if the required trade cannot be contacted. If unable to contact the tradesman or HVAC, contact the Associate Director, Director, or Assistant Director in that order.
  6. Physical Plant personnel responding to the emergency shall check in with MCPD, address the emergency and restore service if possible, ask MCPD to call the Office of Community Living staff member on duty so that the Physical Plant personnel can report repair status directly to the Office of Community Living. If service can not be restored, the Physical Plant personnel shall call the Physical Plant Associate Director, Director or Assistant Director.
  7. If snow or ice accumulate to the point that conditions are unsafe, MCPD shall call Supervisor of Grounds who shall recall appropriate personnel. If Supervisor of Grounds is unavailable, then either the Director or Associate Director. Generally speaking, if the actual or forecasted accumulation is two inches by early morning then snow removal will start at 4:00 am. For more significant accumulation after normal working hours, snow removal will start when approximately two inches have accumulated.
