  • Fort Drum Ammunition Amnesty Day

  • To all: The following OPSEC Alert was distributed by the Army G-2 Office. This is an OPSEC Alert concerning the 23 April 2013 issue of Forbes Magazine. Selected copies of the magazine contain a Microsoft Office 365 campaign ad/promotion with a wireless hotspot. The obvious concern is wittingly or unwittingly bringing one of these magazines into a secure area and the inherent dangers involved with hav-ing this transceiver powered on. Bringing a wire-less transceiver into a secure area (wittingly or unwittingly) is a security violation. Please be aware of what items/devices you are carrying with you when entering a secure area. As a side-note, no wireless enabled devices should be taken into any areas processing classi-fied information without prior approval from proper authorities. If you have any questions contact your supporting organization's communi-cations or security personnel. Regards, Mr. Charles W. Hamberger Jr.

The Kiosks are available to the customers during the hours of 0730- 1530 hours. 3rd Step: Once you have submitted your Dig Permit, Your permit will be reviewed by 16 different agencies to ensure compliance with their individual safety guidelines. The Approving Authorities have 10 Business Days to review, mark out utilities and either approve or disapprove a permit. It is important that you enter a working email address because this is the only way you will be notified on the progress of your permit request.

These are notification emails on the progress of your permit. You are not required to print or keep them. If you do not receive the email notifications, you are then responsible for checking the WEPS site periodically to see if your permit status has been updated. Once your permit has been approved, you must print out a copy and have it available at your excavation site.
