To All:

Please remember the following when dealing with a maintenance/facility issue:

·         For all NON-EMERGENCY SCS Maintenance issues, please submit a work order via Reaction using this link:   PLEASE be as detailed as possible in your description of the issue.  This helps determine which trade/shop to send out for the repair.
