HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah -- Given the expected snowfall and the road conditions over the next 11 hours, the base commander has authorized an early release for “non-essential” personnel effective at 2 p.m. today. Early Release authority is governed by AFI 36-815.

Commanders and directors will manage early release within their units based on mission requirements. All base personnel are reminded to practice sound risk management and to coordinate their release time with their respective supervisors.

Essential personnel are the minimum number required to keep critical base activities functioning. These include, but are not limited to firefighters, security forces, command and control, snow removal, medical, and designated shift personnel.

Due to this early release, Hill Air Force Base is also closed to any non-essential shift workers. The base will resume normal operations, subject to previously established holiday hours, at 12:01 a.m. Nov. 28.
