Inclement Weather Policy

Snowstorms and hurricanes can create inclement weather conditions throughout various times of the year. The Peck Center for Adult Enrichment will be closed whenever the East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) Meal Sites are closed due to snow or other inclement weather. 

Announcements pertaining to closing and cancellations are announced on radio station and major television channels. You may also call the Peck Center for Adult Enrichment for additional information. If you call the Peck Center for Adult Enrichment and no one answers the phone, please stay home and safe until you can verify that the Center is open. 

The Director is responsible for notifying the bus drive, kitchen supervisor, and Peck Center staff. Please note that the Director holds the authority to close the Center early due to inclement weather at any time. 

Meal Site Storm Closings

Cancellations are heard on WPRO-AM. The cancellation reads "East Bay and Aquidneck Island Meal Sites." Cancellation of the meal site has no bearings to cancellations of schools. 

This is an area project, meaning that if one site is open all are open, and if one site is closed, all are closed. The decision to close is made be Karen Emmes and Ray Sinapi of the Cranston Senior Center only. Senior Center directors do not make this decision. 

Participants may call EBCAP at 401-437-1000 anytime after 9 AM for updates on meal site closings. Participants may not call Cranston Senior Center.
