A brief description of the snow and ice removal program, policy, or practice:

NMSU has a written program of snow and ice removal in our Emergency Response Procedure Manual. The campus is divided into six zones. All campus buildings, streets, and sidewalks are prioritized according to their usage during an ice storm. Our winter storms are light compared to a storm in higher elevations, but "ice is ice" and Grounds Department personnel duties are assigned contingent upon activities and severities during a storm.
