VSU - Kings Bay will take the following actions in Case of Emergency  or Inclement Weather Updates:

If classes are canceled we will attempt to post information on the web page as quickly as possible.

  • Inclement Weather:
    • If there is inclement weather such as an afternoon storm, classes will be held unless the base closes the gate.
    • Tropical Storm Watch / Warning & Hurricane warning / watches will be at the decision of the base and local emergency management to determine if classes will be held or not.
  • Base Closure: (Periodically the base will close the gate for training.)
    • Check both gates, if you arrive at the gate at 5:30 or later, then you will be considered absent from your class. Classes start at 5:30, getting through the gate is comparable to driving through peak traffic times.
    • It would be to your benefit to check back at each gate to see if the gates have reopened and will allow you to access.
  • Remember, Give Yourself Ample Time to Arrive Promptly to your Class.

(This immediate update may not be available for classes meeting on Saturday).
