This message is applicable until superseded.
All Wilmington-Area Sites will open as scheduled. These sites include:
- Chestnut Run Plaza
- Experimental Station
- Stine-Haskell Research Center and
- Wilmington Office Buildings
- Each person is responsible for their own safety and knows if travel to and from their work site is prudent based on their personal situation. Employees should discuss options with their leadership if they feel the need to adjust their schedules. For your information, here is the Wilmington-Area Inclement Weather Pay Policy.
- Use caution on your way to work. Take time preparing yourself for snow removal activities. Dress appropriately and use conscious foot placement when walking – walk like a penguin and watch that first step.
- Snow removal crews have been working early this morning to make the sites safe, but isolated slippery areas may be present in parking lots and sidewalks. Crews continue to clear walkways and building entrances. Please use primary sidewalks at your site.
- Please be aware of conditions at building entrances and exits at your site as floors may be wet from personnel traffic.
- Try to use primary roads on your commute. The conditions of secondary and city streets may not be as good as primary roadways.
Follow your normal process to report any unsafe site conditions due to ice or snow (i.e., contacting FACT, Security, Contract Administrator, etc.). For emergency or quick action needs, ice melt products are available for your use at each building entrance.

For the latest information regarding the status of the sites, employees can call 77-4INFO (774-4636) or 1-800-988-2482 (toll-free) or by logging onto www.774INFO.com. (Please remember to hit the Refresh Button to get the latest updates.)
Adjustments to site opening schedules will be posted as early as possible during inclement weather or other site emergency such as a utility disruption, usually by 5:15 a.m. Every effort will be made to post notifications earlier, but depending on storm dynamics and circumstances, including timing, it may be as late as 5:15 a.m. People who normally arrive or commute to work during this period should make appropriate adjustments in their scheduled workday. If weather conditions or circumstances deteriorate or change significantly after an announcement is made to open the sites, it is conceivable an amended announcement could be made. For example, if you notice weather conditions worsen in the area, check back periodically for possible updates.
Generally, radio station announcements may be used for unanticipated emergency notifications such as an off-hour utility disruption. However, for a utility disruption or inclement weather notification, the primary means of communication are for personnel to call 77-4INFO (774-4636) or 1-800-988-2482 (toll-free) or logon to www.774INFO.com, as well as e-mail from site leadership. In addition, please see the information below about the new DuPont Emergency Notification System (DENS).
During inclement weather, exercise caution as you travel on site. Slippery conditions may be present in some areas. Please be especially aware of conditions at building entrances and exits, as floors may be wet from personnel traffic. Using proper footwear and taking short, deliberate steps with a crouched center of gravity may help you keep your balance and avoid a slip and fall.
Report any unsafe site conditions due to ice or snow through your normal channels (i.e., contacting FACT, Security, Contract Administrator, etc..) For emergency or quick action needs, ice melt products will be available for your use at each building entrance.
PLEASE TRAVEL SAFELY!!!
