At the Naval War College, if the naval station limits operations to essential personnel, we typically follow suit. However, there may be times that the Naval War College implements a closure or delay more stringent than the naval station for a variety of factors.
Here’s how to find information about Naval War College delays, closings, and emergencies:
The Naval War College subscribes to a notification service that is used in the event of inclement weather delays or closures or other emergencies to send a voice or text message to phones and/or email accounts. Students, staff, and faculty can sign up or disenroll at http://nwcintranet/content/EmergencyContact/. The incoming call will register as 401-841-2000.
NWC EMERGENCY AND INCLEMENT WEATHER MESSAGE LINE
The Command Duty Officer will provide emergency or weather-related condition changes at the college with a voice mail message on this line: 401-841-2000.
RADIO AND TELEVISION
Announcements are also made through the Rhode Island Broadcasters Association Business and School Cancellation System as a public service. Participating stations announce or publish the most up-to-date listing of weather-related impacts throughout the state for closures and delays. For example, you can log onto any of the TV station (www.abc6.com; www.wpri.com; www.turnto10.com) websites to view this closures and delays listing.
