How to find out about changes in DSCR operating status during inclement weather, other emergencies

By DLA Aviation Public Affairs Office

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.

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. To make sure personal information is up-to-date, log into AtHoc, which can be found on each employees’ desktop applications or by clicking on the “show hidden icons” bar on the bottom of your computer screen. Once AtHoc opens, click on “Access Self Service” to review and/or update email addresses and contact numbers.

Emergency Notification Guide outlines all of the methods listed above to remain aware of changes to the installation’s operational status.
