The Spirit FM Snow Line
When the snow hit last year we were able to provide a vital information service for the county; advising on road conditions, travel news and, of course, how the weather was impacting on schools. Over three days we manned the office from 6.30am, taking calls regarding school closures and transmitting them on air and via our dedicated school closure section of the Spirit FM website. We listed over 120 schools, fielded over 800 phone calls and had in excess of 8,500 hits to our website each day! However, coordinating the operation was no easy task.
In the event of bad weather resulting in school closures the Head Teacher or dedicated school representative will contact us. We will then give out details and list them on-line on our School Closures Page as we receive them. This means we can keep everyone up to date, but leave the telephone lines free for schools to call with details of closures. We will read a comprehensive list of all school closures every 15 minutes between 7.15am and 9.30am, live on-air (times extended if necessary).
Parents: Please do NOT call the station. Listen to Spirit FM (on FM at 96.6, 102.3 and 106.6, or online at www.spiritfm.net) for all the latest information.
