Last May, OPM launched the OPM Alert mobile app that allows users to find out in a moment’s notice if the status of the Federal government in the Washington, DC area changes. The app has been downloaded more than 240,000 times.

Now we are pleased to announce an update that will allow many more Federal employees and military personnel access to it. Those that have been unable to download it due to security restrictions on their work devices now have an appropriate download available through OPM’s website. Users must have a .gov, .mil, or si.edu email address to register and download the mobile app package.

OPM’s dismissal and closure guidance covers any natural disaster or event that disrupts commuting in the Washington, D.C. area.  This includes not only snow and ice storms, but earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes or other special events that may occur during the year.  Whenever these emergencies unfold, OPM is committed to promoting the continuity of operations and ensuring the safety of its workforce. 

The OPM Alert mobile app is a fantastic resource and tool for employees in the DC area to keep up-to-date on status changes. It is customizable based on the alerts you want to receive and features an archive of past announcements. You can download the app through the Apple, Google Play, Windows, and Blackberry App World stores.
