Safety of personnel is of the upmost importance.
Remain in close contact with your immediate supervisor during a base closure.

Everyone is reminded to exercise caution as they travel.  Drive only if it is absolutely necessary.
If you must drive: travel in the day; do not travel alone; keep others informed of your schedule; stay on main roads and avoid back road shortcuts.
People are strongly encouraged to stay indoors during a snow storm, walk carefully on snowy, icy, walkways, and avoid overexertion when shovelling snow.
