MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO, Va. --

Marine Corps Base Quantico is Code Green. Normal base operations will resume tomorrow at regular time. DOD Dependent Schools are on a two-hour delay.

Whenever conditions warrant, a change to the Base Operating Status will be made by the Installation Commander based on the current and projected conditions. Tenant mission requirements, condition of the base and local roads, status of the federal government, and other factors are all considered in this decision.

During duty hours, weather advisories will be provided to the commands and tenant activities, and any early release decision will be made when conditions warrant.

After duty hours, when inclement weather will impact operations for the following day, every effort will be made to make the weather call before 0400.

The Base Operating Status is defined as follows:

Code Green: This is the "normal" Base Operating Status. When the Base Operating Status is Code Green, the Base is open and employees are expected to report to work on time.

Code Yellow: This Base Operating Status is typically used when the impact of the winter weather event is minimal, but significant enough that normal operations may be affected. When the Base Operating Status is Code Yellow, the Base is open on time. Reasonable delays for reporting to work are excused. Unscheduled leave is authorized. Emergency and essential personnel are expected to report to work. Personnel should contact their chain of command for specific command/activity guidance or direction.

Code Blue, XXXX: This Base Operating Status is typically used when the impact of the winter weather event is more significant and time is needed to conduct clearing operations before the base can support near-normal operations. When the Base Operating Status is Code Blue, XXXX, the Base is open at a specific time (XXXX). Reasonable delays for reporting to work are excused. Unscheduled leave is authorized. Emergency and essential personnel are expected to report to work. Personnel should contact their chain of command for specific command/activity guidance or direction.

Code Red: This Base Operating Status is typically used when the impact of the winter weather is severe and it will take significant effort to restore the base to near-normal operations. When the Base Operating Status is Code Red, conditions are severe and the Base is closed for normal operation. Only emergency and essential personnel are expected to report to work. Personnel should contact their chain of command for specific command/activity guidance or direction.

The Base Operating Status will be disseminated as follows:

As a reminder and in accordance with MCBO 11210.1D:
