I checked around the site and didn't find an answer to this (apologies if there's an answer I missed). Here's the situation:
I attend one college as a student while working in academic support at another college. I work with students who depend on me to be present for regularly scheduled sessions throughout the semester. It'd mess them up pretty bad if something kept me from showing up for work.
Every year, the college I attend makes us update our emergency contact (ICE) info. I have a long commute and I had a close call recently, so I've started thinking seriously about who needs to know if something happened to me. Needless to say, I'd want my boss to know ASAP, for her sake and for my students'. Up to now I've just filled in the ICE form with my parents' contact info, but I'm not sure I could count on them to remember to contact my boss, even if I write it down somewhere.
Would it be weird to list my boss as an ICE contact with the college I attend so they can notify her if something happens to me? I feel like it's a sensible thing to do, but inexperience makes me wonder if I've overlooked some reason that it's a bad idea. Of course I'd let her know beforehand and double-check which phone number/etc. she'd prefer I give them.
If it would be weird, what can I do instead to make sure someone contacts her if I'm incapacitated?
