How to find out about delays and closures due to inclement weather

Colorado's weather has been spectacular and unseasonably warm up to this point this year. However, we all know this can change at any time. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you of DPA's notification system should we encounter delayed starts or closures due to inclement weather.

DPA coordinates with the Governor's Office to send a broadcast email to all state employees as soon as a decision is made to delay start times or close. 
 
DPA then updates the State delays/closures notification phone line message, which can be accessed by calling 303-866-5444. DPA also posts all delays/closures in the news section at www.colorado.gov/dpa
 
In addition, DPA notifies local television stations, which list closure information in scrolls on the bottom of the screen starting with the 5 a.m. broadcasts, as well as on their Twitter accounts and websites:
Look for our listing under "State of Colorado Offices (excluding essential facilities & services)."    
 
If you have any questions about delays or closures, please contact your department's human resources unit
