2014-2015 Severe Weather Advisories...


 

FEB LOGO-150x150

SEVERE WEATHERADVISORIES
(SNOW, TORNADOES, EXTREME HEAT, POWER FAILURES & HURRICANES)

 

2014-2015 Season

 

When SEVERE WEATHER is predicted or has begun, the FEB Severe Weather Committee makes a recommendation as quickly as possible for severe weather conditions/events affecting Federal operations (see below) .   Agency heads must call the FEB weather advisory message service (number is o¬nly for agency heads & is available from the FEB) for the information and then implement their agency’s employee notification system as they see fit.  A Tele-work option has now been added as an option but employee must have an agency approved telework plan.


Operating status notifications are made on the following stations beginning on or about 5 am:

 

  • WBAL Radio 1090 AM
  • WTOP Radio 103.5 FM, 103.9 FM & 107.7 FM
  • WBAL TV – Broadcast Air CHANNEL 11 or cable/FIOS equivalent.
  • WJZ TV – Broadcast Air CHANNEL 13 or cable/FIOS equivalent.

 

Television announcements will show ‘Federal Executive Board Agencies’ or just ‘Federal Executive Board’ on the screen (station may modify notice on their own):

Code Red or Closed to the public – Unscheduled Tele-work is encouraged.
Code Yellow or Opening at 10 am and/or Unscheduled leave or Unscheduled Tele-work.
Code Blue  or  Open at Noon and/or Unscheduled leave or Unscheduled Tele-work.


Radio announcements are similar.  Employees, who are unable to report for duty due to local weather conditions, must contact their director/manager/supervisor if they must use unscheduled leave or unscheduled Tele-work. For Codes Yellow & Blue, Emergency Employees must report on time.


OPM advisories for Federal Government agencies in Washington, DC do not apply to the Baltimore metropolitan area agencies.

 

Early dismissal during working hours will be announced by the FEB after consultation with the FEB weather committee based on existing or known severe weather.


Disclaimer:  Not all Baltimore Metropolitan Area federal agencies participate in this plan.  Employees must check with their manager/supervisor to see if their agency participates in the Federal Executive Board (FEB) Inclement Weather Plan and subsequent media announcements.

Employees residing outside the immediate Baltimore Metropolitan commuting area (e.g., Pennsylvania, Southern Maryland or Washington, DC) should discuss notification procedures and requirements with their manager, supervisor or agency head.  

 

Agency heads are the final authority for directing an agency specific early release.  The FEB only makes recommendations.

SEVERE WEATHER IMPACT GUIDANCE

TO ALL AGENCY HEADS:

Until a more definitive recommendation can be made by the FEB WEATHER COMMITTEE, I recommend that you determine the best course of action for your agency consistent with your operational requirements, physical location and the OPM HR flexibilities outlined below.

Below is information received from OPM that you may find useful.

  • If the Federal operating status should change next week as a result of Hurricane Sandy, announcements on the status of Government operations in the Washington, DC area (National Capital Area) will be available at http://www.opm.gov/status/index.aspx

  • NOTE: Keep in mind that the weather impact on the Baltimore area may be different than that in the National Capital Area (NCA).  We are not in the NCA.  The FEB will issue recommendations through the local media (see FEB website for this information).

Below is additional guidance on flexibilities available to agencies:
