As winter approaches and with temperatures already in the 30s and 40s, base personnel must prepare for the season’s hazardous weather and the potential effects to the operating hours of the base. To ensure a safe, secure and operational environment for conducting missions, reporting procedures are in place during adverse winter weather, including snow and freezing rain.
If a decision for early release is made during normal duty hours, it is transmitted to all base organizations via phone calls, e-mail, text messaging and pop-up messages. Decisions regarding delayed arrival or base closure will be transmitted via the WPAFB AtHoc Emergency Mass Notification System, website announcement, radio and television.
The most accurate weather delay information will always be located on the Wright-Patterson website (www.wpafb.af.mil) and snowline 937-656-SNOW (7669).
Personnel are highly encouraged to sign up to receive email and text message notifications via the WPAFB AtHoc Emergency Mass Notification System via the AtHoc client (purple globe) in your systems tray (arrow on the bottom right side of the desktop toolbar). To review your profile and update your emergency contact information refer to the WPAFB Self Service Slides located at https://cs2.eis.af.mil/sites/21248/AtHoc/Forms/AllItems.aspx.
Additionally, public affairs personnel will post updates when possible on the installation Facebook page: www.facebook.com/WPAFB.
Standard public notices of base closures and/or delays will state one of the following messages:
• Wright-Patterson AFB is closed. Employees are excused from duty today, except those personnel who are designated base-essential. Base-essential employees must use Gates 1A, 12A and 19B. Only emergency medical services are available at Wright-Patterson Medical Center.
• Wright-Patterson AFB employees are on a _____ (i.e. 1-, 2-, 3- or 4-) hour delay from normal reporting time this morning, except those personnel who are designated base-essential. Base-essential personnel who are still required to report for duty must use Gate 1A, 12A or 19B. All other gates will be delayed in opening by _____ (i.e. 1, 2, 3 or 4) hours. Wright-Patterson Medical Center will remain on normal operating hours.
• Wright-Patterson AFB employees are authorized an early departure beginning at _____ local today, except those personnel who are designated base-essential. Commanders will use a disciplined staggered release to reduce congestion. Please use all outbound traffic lanes when exiting the gates. Wright-Patterson Medical Center will remain on normal operating hours.
Military and/or civilian base essential personnel are defined as are defined as “personnel required to maintain the minimum base operating functions.” Some examples include, but are not limited to, designated Medical Group personnel, firefighters, Security Forces, dining facility and snow removal teams.
Organizational commanders/directors must determine and assign base-essential status to only those personnel critical to performing the mission during periods of hazardous weather conditions. Those individuals should be notified in advance of their designation as base-essential. Commanders, directors, and supervisors must emphasize the importance of strict adherence to reporting instructions and times.

A September 2016 video shared by ABC News shows Cruz wearing a white shirt and khakis while fighting with other students. Cruz was reportedly handed a two-day suspension following the incident.
Another incident that reportedly contributed to Cruz’s expulsion was his alleged fight with his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend. Cruz was allegedly abusive toward her before they broke up.
