Since school has started, POM has been monitoring the parking stalls at the rear of the campus. We take an observation at approximately 9:00 am, 11:00 am and 2:00 pm daily. At no time have we used the overflow parking area. Especially now, 4 weeks into the semester, there are more than ample vacant parking spaces. Save your gas and time circling the parking lots. Our overflow parking is south of these additional parking spaces. Signs are posted to direct you to the additional parking. It only takes seven (7) minutes from the farthest parking space to the farthest

Extenstion Cords
POM has installed over 25 electrical outlets to eliminate the use of extension cords on a daily basis. Use of extension cords is for very short, temporary periods of time, typically a day. Any other use of extension cords is a safety violation and not authorized. If you need clarification, call Bill Affonso at 933.9992.

Fire Extinguishers, Fire Hydrants, Fire Hoses
All HawCC (Manono & UHH Shops) fire extinguishers, fire hydrants, and fire hoses have been inspected, recharged, and/or replaced. These devices should have a green tag or orange tag with 2009/2010 punched on it. Please call 933-9992 if your device has a tag of a different color or a different date punched.

Handicap Parking
Please respect the handicap stalls. Stalls are for valid/approved handicap individuals. The handicap tag must be displayed at all times. If you are parked in a handicap stall AND you do not have a handicap tag prominently displayed, Hawaii Police Department will cite you. These handicap tags are not transferrable. Also, you may be asked to show your handicap pocket card. If you cannot provide the pocket card, your vehicle will be reported to Hawaii Police Department

Recycle Batteries

Boxes/receptacles to recycle used/dead batteries have been placed at the following locations: 379 at the south east corner outside of room 15, 393 between the men’s and women’s restrooms, 381 next to the bulletin board outside of room 8 and 389 outside of the POM office room 7. Also, if you tape dead batteries together, mark the dead batteries and place them on the floor next to the trash can in your room/office, the janitors will pick them up and dispose of them property.

The following matrix is the status of our battery collection efforts.

Red Boxes On Floor
POM Maintenance has started to tape red boxes on the floor in front of areas that require clearance and immediate access. These areas include, but are not limited to, circuit breaker panels, fire extinguishers, fire alarm pull boxes, fire alarm panels, and data/phone equipment.

Blocking Safety Devices
It is against safety regulations to block any safety devices. This includes but is not limited to fire extinguishers, fire alarm boxes, circuit breaker panels,

No Smoking
Smoking is not allowed within 20 feet of building entrances and open windows.

Electricity Consumption!
Please turn off PCs, monitors, and printers when you leave for the day. PCs, monitors & printers in the sleep mode still consume electricity.

Cigarette Butts
Janitors and grounds keepers continue to spend a lot of time picking up cigarette butts to ensure that our campus does not resemble an ashtray. This is a waste of our campus resources. Please put your cigarette butts in designated smoking receptacles.

Pets On Campus
Pets are not allowed on campus! Only certified/valid guide/aide pets are allowed on campus. Your co-operation will be appreciated.

Flyers On Walls
Putting or taping any type of flyers on building walls is not permitted. The removal of the flyers pulls the paint off and makes the walls unsightly. This also creates unnecessary additional work for the maintenance crew and consumes much needed material

Skateboarding, Rollerblading & Bicycles
Skateboarding and rollerblading are not allowed on campus! Do not ride your bicycles on the walkways and sidewalks.
