Certain personnel are required to provide support services to safety personnel and to provide for the orderly shutdown of FAA activities. In general, it will take approximately four hours to shut down most of the agency’s non-excepted activities, with the possible exception of activities necessary to issue stop work orders on contracts and employee furlough notices.
