Know how to find out changes in operating status during winter weather, other emergencies

By DLA Aviation Public Affairs

There are several ways Defense Supply Center Richmond, Virginia, employees can find out about changes in the installation’s operating status during winter weather and other emergencies. 

If there are any changes in operating status during inclement weather (i.e.  delayed openings, closures), the home page of the DLA Aviation public website will display a change in operating status.

Employees can also call the DSCR Information/Hazardous Weather Hotline at (804) 279-3599 or 1-888-3-CLOSED (1-888-325-6733). 

Richmond area television stations (WTVR 6, WRIC 8 and WWBT 12) also run installation delays or closure announcements both on-air and on their web pages.

Employees can be notified of changes in DSCR operating status on their mobile or home numbers, text or personal email by signing up for the AtHoc computer-based emergency notification system.  

Emergency Notification Guides are also available in both quick reference and comprehensive versions. The guides outline all of the methods listed above to remain aware of changes to the installation’s operational status.  In addition, the comprehensive guide answers frequently asked questions about operations and telework during inclement weather and other emergencies.

To clarify questions and for information on telework during emergencies, the DLA
Telework Guidance is available.
