Emergency Purchases

Emergency Purchases

An emergency situation is an unanticipated, sudden and unexpected occurrence which is life threatening, catastrophic in nature or involves pressing necessity for immediate repairs, reconstruction or maintenance in order to permit the safe continuation of a necessary public use or function or to protect the property or the life, health or safety of any person.

If an emergency occurs during business hours, call the purchasing department for assistance or to request a verbal purchase order number.

If an emergency occurs after normal business hours, take the appropriate action and notify the purchasing department on the next business day.
