Emergency Telework

  • Federal Continuity Directive 1 (DHS): Requirements for incorporating telework into an agency’s continuity plans are found in Annex G of FCD 1.
  • Washington, DC, Area Dismissal and Closure Procedures (OPM):  These procedures apply to situations that prevent significant numbers of Federal employees who work inside the Washington Capital Beltway from reporting to the office on time or remaining at the office for the full workday and for situations which require
    Federal offices to close, including emergencies, severe weather conditions, natural disasters, and other incidents causing disruptions of Government operations. For continuity of operations, it is important for certain Federal Government operations to continue to function, even when offices are closed.
  • Department and Agencies Telework Player Handbook Template (FEMA) 

    This template is set up to provide an example of an exercise player handbook for use when conducting a telework exercise.
