Inclement weather is on the horizon, make sure you have a plan if you decide to close
As the end of the year approaches, so does the chance for snow or ice. Please remember to contact Emergency Response, firstname.lastname@example.org, in the case of a last minute closure due to weather or other urgent events. This email group includes the Metro & Washington County Services team, Inventory, and Transportation, so we are all alerted at once and can quickly notify drivers, cancel orders, and make Food Finder notes.
As a reminder, OFB does not follow school closure decisions or other entities when it comes to deciding to close due to weather. We make the call ourselves and it may differ between the Portland & West offices. You should all be signed up for our alert system, Send Word Now, which will call and text you in the case of an OFB closure.
If your site does follow school district closures to determine if you are open, feel free to use the attached translated, fillable posters to notify clients of weather related closures (Nepali and Burmese are PDF due to language font).
