Policy, Data, Oversight Snow & Dismissal Procedures

Dismissal and Closure Information and Guidance

In emergency situations, we want to ensure that the government continues to operate, and that our Federal workers stay safe. Both of these goals depend on your help.

Take a moment now to familiarize yourself with the emergency policies in your office. Make sure you'll know what to do. Look at the updates OPM uses, and what they mean for you. Although snow is our most common severe weather in the Washington, D.C. area, these dismissal procedures are also used for any kind of emergency.

With your help, we'll keep you prepared, keep you safe, and keep doing the business of the American people.
