Weather delay/closure notification system

As we experience this typical February weather in Colorado, we wanted to both wish you safe travels on your commute home and remind you of the State's notification system should we encounter a delayed start or closure due to 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 offices. 

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

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:

·  KCNC-TV Channel 4 -- or @CBSdenver

·  9News -- or @9NEWS

·  7News -- or @DenverChannel (closings only announced on Twitter)

·  Fox 31 & Denver Channel 2 -- or @channel2kwgn

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
