Emergency Information for Impacted Northrop Grumman Employees

Emergency Information for Impacted Northrop Grumman Employees 

This following information is intended for Northrop Grumman employees impacted by regional, national or international emergencies.



Updated: Saturday, September 16, 2017 @ 5:45am ET

Hurricane Irma

Northrop Grumman U.S. Employees:

The company stands ready to assist employees impacted by Hurricane Irma. It is important for all employees to follow the guidance of local government and law enforcement. As we monitor the impact of the hurricane, we will continue to notify impacted employees.

If needed, employees in the affected region will continue to be contacted through Northrop Grumman’s emergency messaging capability called Everbridge. Everbridge emails will be sent from the “Northrop Grumman Notification System” and once opened, employees will see "Northrop Grumman Notification System" in the message header.

If employees need urgent help after the storm, they can call the company’s Emergency Information Line at 800-995-4318. To receive updates on a site’s open or closure status, select option 2, or to be transferred to the Emergency Contact Center, select option 5. The center is operating 24/7 to help employees who need direct assistance.

Facilities Update:

Florida
Status of Florida Sites

As we resume operations in Florida, please remember that your well-being is of utmost importance. If you are unable to travel to your work location, please work with your manager to take advantage of an alternate work arrangement or liberal leave.

The following Northrop Grumman sites located in Florida are now open:

  • Apopka
  • Davie
  • Niceville
  • Orlando – Corporate Blvd.
  • Panama City
  • St. Augustine
  • Tampa
  • Melbourne – all buildings

As of Wednesday, Sept. 13, the following Northrop Grumman sites in Florida will remain closed:

  • Orlando – Discovery Drive

We will provide an update on sites reopening as soon as we are able to do so. Employees working at customer sites should follow customer and manager guidance.

If you need emergency assistance, call the company’s Emergency Contact Center at 800-995-4318. To receive updates on a site’s open or closure status, select option 2, or to be transferred to the Emergency Contact Center, select option 5. The center is operating 24/7 to help employees who need direct assistance.


The Employee Assistance Program is available for employees 24/7 by calling 800-982-8161. All calls are confidential, and no one will be told about your call or any treatment you receive unless you authorize them to do so. Services are free for employees and eligible family members.


Time Charging Guidance:

In the event a Northrop Grumman site or assigned customer site remains closed, impacted employees will be paid for their regularly scheduled work hours that they were not able to perform due to the closure. Impacted employees should charge the “PEM” absence code in the SAP timesheet, except for:

  • Mission Systems employees on the ES-SAP system should use the 0950 code
  • MS Apopka employees using the Cost Point system should use the "EMERGENCY PLANT SHUTDOWN" event in Autotime

Full-time teleworkers that live and work in a mandatory evacuation area should also use the "PEM" time-charging code for the period of the mandatory evacuation.

Once the evacuation order lifts, an employee unable to work from home should confer with their manager to find an alternate work arrangement (e.g. use PTO).

If a site is open and employees are not able to work their scheduled hours, impacted employees should contact their manager and utilize an alternate work location, flex time, telecommute, or use PTO, consistent with applicable wage and hour law requirements and the U.S. HR Manual.


Evacuation Information

It is important for all employees to follow the guidance of local government and law enforcement.

A phone number for evacuees who are concerned about not having enough gasoline has been announced. That number is (800) 342-3557.

Hurricane Irma Resources

The Northrop Grumman Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and Work/Life Solutions programs stands ready to provide support for those employees and family members impacted by Hurricane IRMA. This information contains a wealth of resource information by state that includes road closures, emergency evacuations, shelters, contacts for local support organizations and much more.

Additionally, EAP and Work/Life Solutions staff is available 24/7 at 1-800-982-8161 to all employees and family members—provided at no cost to you. By calling EAP, you can be connected with practical resources and detailed information, including but not limited to: short-term or emergency housing, evacuation information and routes, guidance to obtain food, medical and water supplies, emergency financial resources and info about pet, animal and livestock evacuation.

The Beacon Health Hurricane Handbook and article, Steps to Take During and After a Hurricane, are comprehensive compilations of information to help support you in preparing for hurricanes and coping with their aftermath. The handbook and article will link you to other relevant materials, including how to prepare for a flood.

Important Information from FEMA’s Hurricane Irma website:

  • Update your disaster kit. Have a three-day supply of non-perishable food, bottled water, a battery-operated radio, flashlight, extra batteries, cash, medicines, first aid kit, pet foods, and important family documents.
  • Know your evacuation routes and prepare options for overnight lodging. Storm surge can cut off evacuation routes, so do not delay leaving if an evacuation is ordered for your area. If you encounter floodwaters, remember—turn around, don’t drown.
  • Develop an emergency communication plan, which includes a phone number for a family member or friend outside the area—a point of contact—in the event of separation.
  • Download the FEMA mobile app (available in English and Spanish) for a customizable checklist of emergency supplies, maps of open shelters and recovery centers, disaster survival tips, and weather alerts from the National Weather Service. The app also enables users to receive push notifications reminding them to take important steps to prepare their homes and families for disasters.

Hurricane Harvey: Guidance for Impacted Employees

In light of the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in the Gulf region, the Northrop Grumman Emergency Contact Center has been activated.

Employees who have been impacted by the hurricane remain in the company’s thoughts. While the hurricane has been downgraded to a tropical storm, significant rain and flooding is occurring and more is expected. The following guidance and information is offered to employees who have been, or may be impacted by the storm.

Emergency Assistance:
The Northrop Grumman Emergency Contact Center has been activated for employees impacted by Hurricane Harvey. For assistance and time charging guidance, call 1-800-995-4318 and select option 5 to be transferred to the Emergency Contact Center or to hear updates on a site’s open or closure status select option 2. The Emergency Contact Center will be available 24/7.

Time-Charging Guidance:

  • In the event a Northrop Grumman site or assigned customer site closes, impacted employees will be paid for their regularly scheduled work hours that they were not able to perform due to the closure. Impacted employees should charge the "PEM" absence code in the SAP timesheet.
  • If a site is open and employees are not able to work their scheduled hours, impacted employees should contact their manager and utilize an alternate work location, flex time, telecommute, or use PTO, consistent with applicable wage and hour law requirements and the US HR Manual.
  • In both cases employees are required to receive guidance from their direct manager.

PTO Donation
The President has declared the impacted area as a major national disaster. Impacted employees will have the ability to receive PTO donations from their colleagues across the company, using PTO donation guidelines found in USHR 3-41.

As a reminder, there are many avenues to both seek and offer assistance during times of extreme hardship:

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
Employee assistance is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 1-800-982-8161. All calls are confidential. No one will be told of your call or about any treatment you receive, unless you authorize them to do so. Services are free of charge for employees and eligible family members.

Supporting Disaster Relief Organizations
Northrop Grumman is also a strong supporter of the American Red Cross and AmeriCares through their annual disaster giving programs, providing a reliable funding base for disaster relief services. Company contributions offset a range of expenses and help ensure that the Red Cross and AmeriCares can respond to a disaster at a moment's notice.

Employees also may support the American Red Cross and AmeriCares directly in a number of ways:

Staying Safe
People should download the free Red Cross Emergency App to have safety information available on your mobile device, including emergency weather alerts, safety information and open shelter locations. Red Cross apps are available in smartphone app stores by searching for the American Red Cross or going to redcross.org/apps.

Employee Support of the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program

Northrop Grumman employees may support the American Red Cross through the Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP), providing a reliable funding base for disaster relief services. Our contributions help ensure that the Red Cross can be on the scene of a disaster at a moment's notice.

Employees may support the American Red Cross directly in a number of ways:

 


Beware of Potential Internet-Based Scams and Viruses Related to Regional, National or International Emergencies

Northrop Grumman employees should be acutely aware of the immediate potential for scams and viruses related to regional, national or international emergencies (such as hurricanes, fires, floods, severe storms, earthquakes or terrorist attacks) posted on the Internet.

After similar situations in the past, e-mails and websites claim to contain exclusive video of the disaster or to solicit donations for the disaster relief efforts. The e-mails often included malicious code that attempted to infect computers with viruses, spyware or Trojan horses. Other e-mails appeared to be legitimate donation requests but were in reality phishing attacks that directed users to a malicious server that collected credit card numbers, PayPal logins and personal information.

There are reports of questionable relief fund sites already available on the Internet. Numerous recent disaster items are also available on eBay, including domain names that sound like disaster relief fund sites. Many of these auctions claim that a portion of the proceeds will go to the disaster relief efforts.

These kinds of scams and attacks seek to take advantage of our charity and our curiosity. The most successful of them look professional and legitimate. They can appear to be identical to authentic relief fund sites. Take your time to carefully consider disaster-relief solicitations before giving. The best protection against these attacks and scams is to donate directly to reputable charitable organizations.

If you receive any questionable e-mails, do not reply.
