Text Alerts

Fort Meade uses text alerts as a resource to communicate time sensitive information to the community. To receive notices regarding severe weather conditions, the operational status of Fort Meade and other emergency announcements, text the message "follow ftmeadealert" (without quotation marks) to 40404. Once registered, users will automatically receive a text message whenever there is a change to the operating schedule.

The text is sent through Twitter, but doesn't require users to be registered Twitter users. Standard text messaging rates apply to anyone receiving text alerts. However, there is no cost to Fort Meade to offer this service.

To stop receiving text alerts, send STOP to 40404 to be removed from the service.
