Fort Drum officials have announced that no parking will be allowed along streets and roadways on post from Nov. 1 through April 1, per Fort Drum Regulation 190-5. Vehicles parked on the street during the winter months restrict access for snow removal equipment.

Keeping streets free of parked vehicles helps to ensure clear access for emergency vehicles and reduces pedestrian accidents caused by unplowed streets that could not be safely accessed.

Residents may use overflow parking lots in housing and designated parking lots for barracks.

Vehicles in violation of the regulation will be ticketed (monetary fine) and are subject to being towed at the owner’s expense if impeding snow removal.

The Fort Drum Medical Activity now offers secondary COVID-19 booster shots based on updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

*Patients age 50 or older may choose to receive a second booster dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least four months after the first booster dose.

*Patients age 18-49 who received a Janssen COVID-19 vaccine as both their primary series and booster dose may receive a second booster dose using an mRHA COVID-19 vaccine at least four months after the first Janssen booster dose.

*Patients 12 or older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may receive a second booster dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least four months after the first booster dose.

MEDDAC beneficiaries who fall under one of those categories may call (315) 772-2778 to schedule an appointment.

Fort Drum’s Directorate of Emergency Services encourages everyone to contribute to community security by reporting suspicious behavior or activities to (315) 774-8477 (TIPS).

Callers to the anonymous tip line should report odd behaviors and activities, such as people measuring or asking for blueprints of important buildings; strangers asking about security protocols; a briefcase, suitcase, backpack or package left behind; vehicles left unattended in front of buildings; and chemical smells or fumes coming from a residence or business. The effort is part of iWatch Army, an antiterrorism program.
