California Wildfires

We stand ready to assist employees who are affected by the devastating wildfires in California. It is important for all employees to follow the guidance of local government and law enforcement and, if instructed to evacuate, to do so promptly.

In the meantime, 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.

If employees need urgent help before, during or after the fires, 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.

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.


The Northrop Grumman Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and Work/Life Solutions program can provide support for those impacted by the California wildfires. These two programs provide valuable resources, especially in times of distress. A quick call to an EAP licensed counselor can help provide services such as the location/availability of medical resources, trauma counseling and family support services. The health and welfare of our employees is of primary concern to Northrop Grumman, and we strongly encourage the use of the EAP telephone counseling benefit. These programs are designed to address emotional and household challenges associated with traumatic events. The EAP and Work/Life Solutions are only a phone call away at (800) 982-8161, available 24/7, confidential, and never at a cost to you or your family.

Below are comprehensive compilations of information to help support you in preparing for wildfires and coping with their aftermath:

Employee Support of the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program

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.
