Electric, ceramic or other portable plug heaters are NOT authorized to
be purchased and brought into the College by employees or students. 

 

For emergency situations or health-related issues as defined by
Facilities Services in conjunction with Health & Safety, space heaters
will be provided by Facilities Services.  

 

If you are too cold, your area coordinator or you should call Facilities
Services Help Line 6000.   

 

You are also requested to keep your area coordinator in the loop of any
direct Facilities Services Help Line 6000 calls to help your area
coordinator prioritize requests in your area.

 

Electric space heaters must be kept a minimum of 36 inches away from
anything else. (This, of course, means that they should never be under a
desk.) 

 

Another major point is that the tripping of a breaker is a warning sign
that the heater should not be used in that location. 

 

Please rely on Facilities Services staff to determine the proper
location and connection for space heaters when no other solution can be
found.
