FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) -

Due to the threat of dangerous winter conditions, federal agencies and activities in or around Fort Benning are adjusting their hours Jan. 28-29 to ensure the safety and welfare of our Soldiers, civilians and family members.

The post will be closed on Jan. 29 for non-essential employees.

Emergency and mission-essential employees should report to their worksites on time unless otherwise directed by their supervisor or manager. Non-emergency employees must notify their supervisor of their intent to use unscheduled leave.

If the weather is more severe than expected, this delayed arrival time may be changed. All employees should remain in contact with their supervisor or manager.

Schools/ Child Development Centers

At this time, Fort Benning Department of Defense Education Activity Schools will be closed for students and staff Jan. 28 and 29.

All CDCs will be open Jan. 28 at the regular time, but will close at 3 p.m. On Jan. 29, children of mission-essential personnel only, ages infant through pre-school, must go to the Main Post CDC, Building 1366, which will open at 5:30 a.m. School-age children, kindergarten through 8th grade, must go to the School-Age Services Building, Building 2653, which will open at 5:30 a.m. If your child is on medication, parents must bring medication to these alternate sites when dropping children off.

At 10 a.m. Jan. 29, children will move to their regular CDC locations, when all CDCs are scheduled to open and regular hours resume.

Healthcare

All patient appointments scheduled from noon Jan. 28 through 6 p.m. Jan. 29, will be rescheduled by Martin Army Community Hospital. Patients will be notified of their new appointment time with a phone call from their respective care provider. Medical services and emergent care will be available during these hours with reduced staffing.

Please check the Fort Benning and Martin Army Community Hospital web pages, as well as the Martin Army Community Hospital Facebook page, for updates. Information is also available on the CARE line at 706-544-2273, by selecting Public Affairs Updates.
