Fort Riley operating with minimal manning, limited services Wednesday


Icy conditions affecting the area didn’t spare Big Red One soldiers stationed at Fort Riley.

Due to the weather, Fort Riley will be operating with minimal manning and limited services on Wednesday, Jan. 23.

The Irwin Army Community Hospital will keep all scheduled patient appointments, though dental and medical clinics outside of IACH will not be open. Patients can reschedule appointments by calling 239-3627.

The Whitside Child Development Center will open at 7 a.m. for any parents pre-approved through their chains of command on the minimal manning list.

As a result, physical fitness training is canceled. Additionally, all Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation facilities will be closed — including the Middle School teen center, Warrior Zone and fitness centers.

All evening college classes are canceled as well as all human resources programs — which include the Soldier For Life-Transition Assistance Program, Fort Riley Education Services and RAPIDS ID card center.

Soldiers, family members and civilian professionals who have questions or
concerns are encouraged to visit or the
Fort Riley website at and click on “Advisories”
for updated information.  Additionally, all employees of Fort Riley are
urged to maintain contact with their chain of command and/or supervisor for
the most updated information.
