Mission Essential Levels

What do I do in case of inclement weather?

Reduced Operations Categories
(1) Emergency employees are those needed at work as scheduled regardless of the operational condition or weather situation. Typically, those are hospital employees, snow removal crews, telephone operators, boiler plant operators, food service workers, fire fighters, and others designated by commanders/division chiefs. It is important that Emergency employees clearly understand they must report for work as scheduled. Dover Air Force Base Emergency Services Identification Cards are issued to Emergency employees to allow them to drive to work even when roads are closed to normal traffic.

(2) Mission Essential Level 1 (MEL1) personnel provide indispensable services necessary for flight line operations and BCE support services.

(3) Mission Essential Level 2 (MEL2) personnel provide indispensable services necessary for non flight line operations.

(4) Mission Essential Level 3 (MEL3) personnel provide services that can be postponed until weather/operational conditions improve or change.

(5) Personnel in training/school on Dover AFB will normally be considered MEL3 unless recalled to work by their supervisors or training is terminated/suspended. In the latter event, personnel are responsible for contacting their workcenter supervisors.

For additional information during inclement weather, call (302) 677-BASE or 677-2273.
