Thin Ice – Do not go on iced-over water – especially in this warm/cold back and forth! Ice can be dangerously thin even if it appears to be thick and safe. Hike, snowshoe, sled and ski to your heart’s content, but do so safely. Stay on the trails, obey all posted signs and remember to contact 911 at the first sign of trouble.

Catalytic Converter Thefts – There has been an increase in thefts, locally and nationally, of pollution control devices and other parts from vehicles. In a trend that started on campus last spring, we continue to see these thefts. If you see someone unexpectedly rummaging around underneath a vehicle, give us a call and we will check it out.

Be a Good Sam – Cornell’s Good Samaritan Protocol and New York’s Good Samaritan Law aim to remove barriers to those seeking assistance by reducing judicial and legal consequences for underage drinking and the use of other substances. These protocols apply to individuals and organizations on campus. That said, we urge you to avoid drinking to excess and to call 911 if you notice someone who needs assistance.
