Redstone Arsenal remains closed Friday, April 28 due to the power outage caused by severe storms earlier this week in Alabama. USASAC mission essential capabilities continue at Redstone Arsenal at the new headquarters building. Other USASAC field offices outside the Redstone area remain fully operational.
USASAC's number one priority is to ensure employee and contractor safety and achieve accountability for everyone in the USASAC family. Any workforce members in need of help or who have not been contacted by supervisors are asked to call someone in their supervisory chain as soon as possible. Additional accountability contact numbers include 256-975-9501 or 703-589-0742.
Redstone Arsenal continues to operate with very limited electrical power and remains closed for all normal operations for the immediate future. All gates are open to mission essential, Active Duty and retired military personnel (with the exception of Gate 3) but with more restricted hours than usual and with only one lane open. Gate 3 will continue to be closed until further notice. Power availability is anticipated to be challenged for the next three to five days.
Additional guidance referencing normal operations will be issued on Sunday, May 1. Please continue to monitor all media outlets and the USASAC homepage for further information and/or clarification if possible. If you have questions contact the USASAC Command Information Office at 256-783-0981.
