  • M-F 4:00pm - 10:00pm - Campus Police will visually monitor the tents to ensure the heaters are operating properly. During this time if there is a problem with the heaters Campus Police will turn the heater off and close the valve. At 10:00pm the Campus Police will turn off the heaters and secure for the night.
  • WEEKENDS - FMPC will monitor the heaters from 7:00am to 3:00pm.                                                                             Campus Police will monitor from 3:00pm to 10:00pm.
