Winter is once again upon us. Here are some informational tidbits to help you better understand what to expect during inclement weather events via FAQs, contact information, and a snow removal priority map, as well as some important safety tips. Enjoy!

Frequently asked questions (and answers) about snow removal at NCI at Frederick:


FME has placed buckets of salt with scoops at the entrance of many buildings throughout the facility. This is done as a courtesy for self-service use. Please use responsibly and do not remove the buckets.


Safety Tips

During inclement weather events, please be prepared with footwear that is appropriate for snow and ice.

It is recommended during winter months that you keep some basic safety essentials such as a blanket, drinking water, snacks, a small shovel, a scraper, a first aid kit, a car charger for your cell phone, and flares in your vehicle.

The use of personal space heaters is generally discouraged, but we recognize that we all have a different temperature set-point for a comfortable working environment. Please observe these rules to ensure safe operation and the safety of those around you.
