When you call Facilities (ext. 8681)
Calls into Facilities will be directed to an automated system with the following options:
- Emergency calls - (Option 1) will be directed to JC security which will then evaluate the situation and contact the appropriate people within the facilities department.
- Emergency repairs are identified as anything that requires immediate attention to avoid serious injury or damage. Emergency repairs include broken water or gas pipes, a power failure, water backing up from a drain, any potential fire or shock hazard, conditions that could cause slip and fall accidents, and heating problems which could result in a freezing situation.
- Routine repairs - This will direct you to the facilities department web page, where you will find the Maintenance, Grounds and Custodial Work request. This must be filled out completely and e-mailed to Facilities@jccmi.edu. No work orders will be completed outside of this process. We will not accept e-mails or voicemails as a work request.
- Routine repairs are problems that can be scheduled and do not require immediate attention - even if you would like it taken care of as soon as possible. Examples of routine repairs include a burned-out light bulb, empty soap and/or paper towel dispenser, broken or sticking drawers or cabinets, broken blinds, and rodents/pests.
- Hot and Cold calls are not an emergency when they fall within 4 degrees of our target set points which are 72 degrees in the summer and 70 degrees in the winter. All thermostats around campus are locked out to maintain these temperatures, they have the ability to go + or - 2 degrees on either side of the target range depending on where the thumbwheel is in relationship to the current room temperature.
- Voicemail - individuals and vendors will have the option at the end of the automated system to leave a message. Voicemails attempting to place one of the above requests will not be responded to or placed in the system. This extension and messaging system does not go to a specific person; if you need to contact a specific person within the Facilities Department please use their e-mail or extension within the college directory.
