PPS preparations and response to Special Weather Statement

Due to the Special Weather Statement that is in effect for Kingston, Physical Plant Services (PPS) staff will be verifying the operation of sump pumps across campus and making arrangements to have portable pumps on hand for pumping out areas in the event of flooding. Grounds crew will also be mobilized to clear catch basins of leaves and debris.

Please assist PPS to prepare for these weather conditions by responding as follows:

  • keep electrical use in your unit to a minimum and turn off all non-essential lights, equipment and computers to assist in the effort to reduce the electrical load required for Queen’s facilities.
  • ensure that all windows are fully closed
  • immediately report any observed flooding or roof leaks to Fixit by calling extension 77301
