UNIVERSITY OF THE FRASER VALLEY
SNOW CLEARANCE AND ICE CONTROL


Provision for snow clearance and ice control for the University is provided for through a contract with a snow removal contractor. Whenever possible, snow and ice control activities will be scheduled during campus off-hours to minimize disruption to routine UFV educational and operational activities. The aim is to have all roads, parking lots and sidewalks snow and ice free by 8:00 a.m. on each "school" day.

The following is the order of priority for snow removal and/or sanding

  • Sidewalk ramps, curb cuts and parking stalls used by the disabled.
  • Main building entrances and emergency road access points.
  • Sidewalks, when required.
  • Walks are generally sanded and/or salted once in the morning and once again in the afternoon (or increased depending on the need).
  • Roads and parking lots.

In Winter, Watch Your Step...

Most accidents due to ice, snow and general winter conditions are preventable. Here are a few guidelines to help us get through the season safely:

  • While travelling to and from work or school, wear appropriate winter footwear - preferably with flat, rubber, slip-resistant soles.  A second pair of footwear should be kept at the workplace.
  • Where possible, walk on plowed, sanded, well-lit paths and walkways. Avoid taking short cuts over snow banks.
  • Be extra careful when getting out of your vehicle in parking lots as it is very difficult to sand between parked cars, and there may be slippery patches.
  • Always use handrails on steps and walk carefully.
  • Cross roadways at pedestrian crosswalks.
