Due to the incidents of fires and other safety concerns, Lane College prohibits the use of, possession of, and/or charging of batteries, whether observed or unattended, of any Hoverboard type device within any residence hall. This prohibition includes all self-balancing boards/scooters and other similar equipment which are self-driven and either motor or battery powered. This prohibition will be in effect until safety standards of them have been adequately developed and implemented across all models. These devices' batteries can burst into flame especially while being charged- resulting in a metal fire that can burn with intense heat. Lane College is committed to the safety of its residential communities and has prohibited this item from any college managed residence hall until further notice. Please keep this new information in mind as you travel back to campus from winter break, and leave any device in this category at home. Devices identified in the residence halls will be removed and the user/owner will be referred to Dean of Student for a violation of college policy.
Please respond to Mr. Macklin Gipson, email@example.com, with any questions regarding this policy.
