Lodging/Hotel Policy for Emergency Employees

Mike Collins ASKED

We occasionally reserve hotel rooms for our emergency response (Public Works in this case) employees when we worry that they may not be able to make it to work due to emergency condition. This most often occurs during snow, but could occur for other weather events, or even for planned events (large-scale protests or gatherings).


Does somebody have a policy that provides clear, concise guidance or parameters for an agency on when it is prudent to do so? For example, should it only be provided for employees that live more than 25 miles away? What are the expectations for an employee to make it to work in adverse conditions?
