How would you rate your experience with Emergency Facilities?

On Saturday, November 22, a failed transformer in Harbin Hall caused a power outage in the middle of the night on the north side of campus. According to Vice President of Planning and Facilities Management Robin Morey, power was restored to New North, Reiss, ICC, and Dahlgren Chapel by 6:30 p.m., but it was not restored in Harbin Hall through an emergency generator until 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

“After investigating the outage, Planning & Facilities Management has determined they will need to replace and modernize the transformer,” Morey wrote in an email to Vox. “This is a longer term project that will take several weeks.”

Although campus-wide power outages are not necessarily a common occurence, students frequently have a need to call Emergency Facilities–especially in odd hours of the night–to take care of issues with their living spaces. Vox is curious as to how you would rate your level of satisfaction in urgent situations where an Emergency Service Request was made in the “after hours”. Please take the time to answer a few of our questions below the jump about your experience with Emergency Facilities–and submit any entertaining, or traumatizing, stories you may have as well. (For an example of a particularly crappy elevator situation, consult your friends living in Darnall…)
