Every year, the head of your operating units should determine if any work activities must be continued in operation despite a closing or dismissal due to an emergency or other condition.

To carry out these activities during an emergency situation or other condition, emergency personnel (including alternates) are identified and notified. If you are designated as “emergency employee” by your supervisor, you will be required to report to, or remain at, work in emergency or other situations. Dismissal or closure announcements do not apply to you unless you are instructed otherwise.
