Fort Bragg reporting a blackout, officials say


FORT BRAGG, N.C. (WNCN) – According to a Facebook post, Fort Bragg is experiencing a power outage this morning, but the post is open.

Service members need to contact their chain of commands for instructions on when to report to duty.

Civilian employees, including contractors and Exchange and Commissary employees, need to contact their supervisor for reporting instructions, the post said.

Womack Army Medical Center is operating under a reduced capacity due to the outage. The Emergency Department is open, but the urgent care clinic is closed until power is restored.

Driving in Fort Bragg is extremely hazardous at this time — especially at the intersections — so use caution when approaching,

There’s no word on the status of the CDCs nor other FMWR facilities being open, and officials recommend you call them before going to any of them.

Many of Fort Bragg’s partners like the Exchanges, the commissaries and restaurants will more than likely adjust their hours today so officials ask that you please be patient as they determine a cause and impact of this outage.

The post also ask that you monitor their site and local media for additional information.

If you observe any suspicious activity, you are asked to call 911 or 910-907-3227.
