When it is likely that we will be hit by a hurricane a mass
email will be sent to everyone reminding them to turn off their computers
before evacuating their campus. Once the decision has been made to evacuate, an
email will be sent to all staff reminding them a second time to turn off their
computers and to tell them they should cover their computer, monitor, keyboard
and mouse with trash bags. Trash bags
should be available through your local custodian.
The computer center will be responsible for coordinating the
covering of computer labs in the Beeville campus. Off campus sites will be contacted
to ensure labs will be covered.
All servers in the Computer Center will be shut down and
disconnected from power outlets and then covered to protect from water damage.
Backups will be made of all critical data stored on the servers and disks will
be given to appropriate individuals to take off campus. Key people will have
contact numbers of computer center personnel. (Tony, Robert, Ryan). Computer
center personnel will have emergency phone numbers with them.
Once access to the campus is permitted, each building will
be checked for possible computer damage. All labs will be uncovered if
appropriate and a recap of our situation will be submitted with estimated
damage to computers if any.
Off campus sites will be called to get an evaluation of
their computer situation. If necessary, personnel from the computer center will
be sent to assist with the evaluation and to recover damaged computers.
Once all recovery has been completed, the computer center
will hold an evaluation meeting to suggest improvements to the established
