The Department of Administrative Services offers an additional way to get information when state government closes offices due to inclement weather or other factors: text messages, e-mails, or both. Please read all the information on this page before signing up.
NOTE: This service applies to regional- and county-wide office closures, not the closure of a single building or offices in a single city. Additionally, the service only applies to unexpected office closures. DAS does not use this service to announce office closures for state furlough days or state holidays.

State offices in Noname
The Oregon Department of Administrative Services provides this notification system as a courtesy. This system serves as an additional level of communication between DAS and interested parties, including state employees, who want to know when state government closes offices because of inclement weather or other factors. The following tools represent the primary means through which DAS communicates building closures: the media, the following Web page, http://oregon.gov/sites/DAS/bldg_close/index.page, and for Salem and Portland closures, an employee-only hotline: 503-373-0850.
Technical difficulties may cause this notification system to malfunction or delay message delivery. DAS is not responsible for such mishaps. State employees have a responsibility to obtain notice of state office closures using the means listed above. Employees should speak to their supervisor if they have questions about the process the state uses to close offices, how the state communicates closures, the role of the employee, and the employment rules that apply.
When cell phone or e-mail accounts change or close, this system will automatically remove those numbers or accounts. In that case, the user has the sole responsibility to return to this site to submit new cell phone or e-mail accounts to receive future closure notices.
