    Good Friday Power Shut Down - DeNaples Center

    April 16, 2019

    On Good Friday, April 19, 2019, from 6 a.m. to 12 noon the electrical power to the DeNaples Center will be shut off. During the power outage, electrical preventative maintenance work will be performed.  The items for repair and maintenance were located during a recent three-day inspection and scanning of our entire campus electrical system.  The DeNaples Center will be closed during the power shutdown and access to the building will be limited.

    Note: The DeNaples Center is the only campus building being affected by the power shutdown and electrical maintenance work.

    University staff will monitor the operation of the DeNaples Center’s generator throughout the day.  Please contact Mark Murphy, mark.murphy@scranton.edu or Susan Falbo, susan.falbo@scranton.edu, if you have a special request pertaining to refrigeration needs or powering up equipment during the power outage at the DeNaples Center.

    In the DeNaples Center, it is highly recommended that personal computers be turned off when leaving campus for the Easter holiday whether that is Thursday, April 18, 2019, or earlier.  Any other sensitive electronic equipment in your area that does not need to be running should also be turned off and unplugged.  Some examples are noted below:    

    • Personal Computers, unplug or turn off.
    • Misc. Electronics, unplug or turn off.
    • TVs, unplug.
    • Point of Sales Equipment, unplug.
    • Office Department refrigerators and small refrigerators should be cleaned out since they will not have power for about 6 hours.

    These are good precautions to take when you know power is being turned off.

    If you have any concerns about the power being shut down in the DeNaples Center, please contact my office at 570-941-6267 or send an email and explain the concern and I will make every effort to accommodate your concern if possible.
