An installation-wide power outage will turn the lights out at Fort Gordon Saturday to let Georgia Power make needed improvements to the post’s power substation.
Post officials say the outage will last approximately seven hours beginning at 9 a.m. and ending about 4 p.m.
During the outage, power will remain on at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center, in order to keep emergency health services available. A small number of other agencies on post and some Morale, Welfare and Recreation facilities will also remain open; a complete list and more information to assist during the outage is available online at www.gordon.army.mil/NEWS/power_outage. However, almost all other facilities, including the Exchange and Commissary, will power down during the outage.
Installation officials recommend that anyone planning a visit to the installation that day postpone their visit until after the power outage has ended.
