                       to the budget crisis of 2002-2003. As a result, a

                       The increase of adjunct faculty in the clinical setting
                       creates a need to impart critical information such as
                       unusual occurrence actions, needle-stick follow-up,
                       and other safety concerns in the health care setting.

                       hours when others are not on campus. These
                       individuals need to know how to respond to student

      communicaio    system that communiates with the Security radio

                     that cannot be picked up in some campus locations,
                     does not have Security channels, and are not
                     reliable. A new base station, antennna, and radios
                     for each staff person will improve ability to contact
