Update Messages

NOTE TO SUPERVISORS: Supervisors should activate their internal alert-notification rosters to inform their work force of changes to duty status. Employees with the slightest doubt as to their duty status should contact their supervisor.

When bad weather or road conditions occur that affect operations at Fort Belvoir, that information is recorded on the Fort Belvoir Information Hotline at (703) 805-3030 and here at Belvoir Online. The Hotline and Web site are the best places to check for information about how the weather has impacted operations on post. Information is continually updated during inclement weather, both during and after duty hours, to report measures the post may take as a result of winter weather storms or other emergencies.

Fort Belvoir operating status is also provided to the local television and radio stations whose Web links are provided below. In addition to running weather-status announcements in their on-air broadcasts, most media outlets also list them in “Operating Status” links on their Web sites.

Please note that when events are significant, literally HUNDREDS of organizations in Virginia, Maryland, D.C., West Virginia and Pennsylvania can and will submit their status to the media. The more notices there are, the less frequently any one notice is announced. In some events, it may be a half hour or longer between the time when Fort Belvoir’s status appears or is heard.

That’s why it is important to know how to get Fort Belvoir’s status more directly. In addition to this page, additional info is posted to Fort Belvoir's Facebook page at and Twitter feed at
