Thousand of civilian workers at Fort Bragg could soon be affected by federally mandated furloughs.

An email from Fort Bragg officials says that 2,500 civilian workers under the Garrison command will have to take up to 11 days off without pay.

Those workers started getting notices Thursday.

Fort Bragg spokesman Tom McCollough said the written notices are the first step in furlough process.

Garrison command civilian workers aren't the only ones affected.

Womack Army Medical Center says civilian employees at the hospital and clinics will also have to take days off, as will more than 600 civilian workers at forces command.

The furloughs begin July 8 and run through Sept. 30.
