Washington, DC, Area Dismissal and Closure Procedures Memo

As we begin the 2016-2017 winter season, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) would like to take this opportunity to remind Federal departments and agencies of the Washington, DC, Area Dismissal and Closure Procedures guide. These Procedures reflect the principle that the Federal Government's vital business must continue without compromising the safety of our employees and the general public. Although the Procedures are typically issued in the winter, the announcements are applicable for any emergency or significant event that causes a disruption inside the "Washington Capital Beltway."

For more information, review the December 2, 2016 Washington, DC, Area Dismissal and Closure Procedures Memo and the 2015 Washington, DC, Area Dismissal and Closure Procedures guide.
