Closing and Cancellation Procedure
Career Development Center and CDCs New 2 U
Before CDC cancels work this year due to inclement weather, you should know the process used when it decided to close. Our primary consideration is for the safety of the consumers and staff of our agency. If at any time we do not cancel or close and you believe the safety of the individuals you care for is being compromised due to the weather conditions, please do not risk their safety. Since our agency covers 7 counties, parts of our service area may be safe to travel while other parts may not.
Prior to our decision, we talk to the bus company about the condition of the roads and the weather patterns that seem to be developing. Based on that information, we make the decision to cancel work, begin late, or allow work to start on time. Obviously, it is not an exact science. Again, we try to err on the side of safety.
HOW YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED
Once we have been cancelled, we will send out an automated phone message with the closing details. We will also alert the local media so that they can broadcast the news. The following media will be available to keep you informed.
RADIO: WFIW radio station
SOCIAL MEDIA: Career Development Centers Facebook page
