Training Centers are OPEN for YOU!
The training centers have a new tool to assist anyone attending a classes at either center. In the event the centers need to close due to weather or other emergency, members can now visit a web portal specific to each center to see the building status indicator in the form of a traffic light.
We know some of you travel great distances and this tool will help keep you informed.
The page is mobile friendly so it will easily adapt to a smart phone or tablet. It can be checked from any internet connected device.
The messages can be any of the following status: Open, Delayed Opening, Tentative (Check Back), Closed
In addition to the status light, a tailored message can be added to indicate a delayed opening or any other special information that the centers need to relay. We hope you bookmark the page for your center just in case you ever need it!
Each location has it own status page:
- Local 4 NJ is http://4.bacnj.com
