What should you do when Old Man Winter strikes?
Local meteorologists predict a warmer-than-normal winter this year, but, in Texas, you never know what the weather will do. When the temperatures dip below freezing and there’s snow or ice on the ground, you may wonder whether or not the Health Science Center will be open.
Here are three easy ways to find out:
- Call our main phone number – (817) 735-2000. This is the first and most authoritative source for weather closure information. If the Health Science Center does close for inclement weather, a special recording will play when you call the main number and will remain on that line until the decision to reopen has been made.
- Visit our Web site – http://www.hsc.unt.edu. After the decision to close for bad weather has been made, a notice on our main Web site will note the date and time of closure. The notice will remain on the main Web page until the campus is reopened.
- Watch local TV and listen to local radio. All four major local television channels – NBC 5, ABC 8, CBS 11, and FOX 4 – are notified when we close for inclement weather. If we do close, our information will be included with the school, government and other closure announcements. Local radio stations WBAP (820 AM), KRLD (1080 AM) and KVIL (103.7 FM) also are notified of HSC closures.
Please do not call the campus police for closure information. The police department should be called in emergency situations only. HSC departments may develop their own phone tree to spread the word within departments.
