YMCA Weather-Event Notification Procedure:
When the weather is predicted to be bad (heavy rain, ice, snow, etc.) the YMCA Management will follow the below protocol for notifying Members of scheduling changes.
- We will decide at 10PM the night before expected inclement weather, to open at 7AM. At that time, an e-blast will be sent to all Members (those who have not unsubscribed) and will be posted to social media.
- The next day, between 5AM and 6AM, Y Management will contact the company in charge of salting and plowing to get a read on site accessibility as well as road conditions.
- Based on that input, at 6AM the decision will be made by Y Management to:
- Maintain the 7AM opening,
- Extend the delay, or
- Close for the day
* Another e-blast will be sent for alternatives 2 & 3.
* We will still follow standard procedure as it relates to the closing/ delays of Greenwich Public Schools and our programming.
* All updates will be posted to greenwichymca.org/alerts as well as Facebook and Instagram.
