The Command Information section provides news and information to members of the Fort Meade community by producing an array of products for our internal and external audiences.
The newspaper's website contains important information for our installation community and spotlights the activities of Fort Meade's service members, families, and employees. Paper copies are distributed to many locations on Fort Meade, each Thursday by 10 a.m.
Meade TV is a weekly newscast detailing various installation events and important information for residents and personnel, including gate closures, construction notices, and observances. You can view the latest episode here.
Fort Meade offers a free app that allows users to receive alerts regarding gate closures, emergency events, weather delays/closures and more right to their phone. Users can also instantly report potholes, security concerns, stray animals and more with the push of a button. It is available in any app store and is approved for government phones.
The installation also 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.
