While it may not be “life or death”, an IT outage can be a real hassle and disrupt your organization for hours.
The number one problem during an IT outage is the fact that the IT department gets bombarded with phone calls: “Is email down?”… “Is the internet down?”… “Are my emails gone?”… you’ll hear it all. Someone has to field those calls. That someone is usually the same IT professional who needs to fix the problem.
So, do your IT people a favor; send a quick note out to let folks know that you already know about the problem. It will help cut down on calls and let your team get busy fixing the problem.

The most important information in this template should be the location of the parking lot closing, date and time.

Short and sweet and leaves no room for confusion.
