Welcome to the SERS Employee Emergency Alert page. Employees of SERS can learn of weather-related emergencies or other events that may result in building closure, or delayed open of business or early dismissal.
In the event of a significant event, SERS staff may be asked to check this site throughout the day for updates on the organization and staffing.
SERS uses an emergency notification system to alert staff or any emergency conditions that may have an impact on travel to and from work, office closure, or access to SERS. Emergencies include, but are not limited to severe weather, pandemic event, damage to the SERS facility, or an incident that would restrict access to the SERS facility.
During severe weather situations, the county Sheriff may declare snow or flood emergencies and the National Weather Service may issue severe weather watches, warnings, and advisories when dangerous weather conditions are expected. If there is a severe weather situation in Franklin County that affects SERS’ business hours, employees will receive an emergency alert message as early as possible. Otherwise, employees are expected to report to work.
If an employee lives outside of Franklin County and there is a severe weather situation in the area he or she travels to get to SERS, that employee must use discretion when determining whether or not to report to work. Should an employee decide not to report to work due to a severe weather situation when the office is open for business, he or she must communicate with his or her supervisor or manager. Upon return to work the employee will be required to enter his or her leave time into ADP HR Self-Serve.
All Other Emergencies
If there are other types of emergencies that affect SERS’ business (pandemic event, damage to SERS Facility, etc.), employees will receive an emergency alert message. Should Executive Management decide to close the office, the alert will be sent as early as possible. Otherwise, employees are expected to report to work.
There are no emergencies at this time. SERS is open for business as usual.
