In order to ensure the safety of all Fairfield Glade Community Club members, employees and guests, the following procedures will apply:
For Monday-Friday. FGCC will use the Cumberland County Schools as the initial benchmark for both closings and delays when we expect bad winter weather.
All facilities, including administration and garbage service, will use the same schedule as the county schools initially.
Use a smart phone, TV or radio to determine the status of the Cumberland County schools.
If the county schools are closed or delayed, but it is determined that roads within Fairfield Glade are safe for travel, and we can staff the facilities appropriately, an email and text message will be sent to all those in our databases prior to opening our facilities.
If it is necessary to delay the opening of club facilities, all facilities will not open until 11 a.m.
For weekends and holidays. We will continue to use the current system of emails and text messages to notify you about any closings or delays.
Due to federal regulations, text messages cannot be sent out prior to 8 a.m.
Many people are calling the police department to check on road conditions. Our facilities’ closings and/or delays are an indication of the road conditions as we do not open until we are confident that the roads are fairly safe to travel and parking lots/walkways have been cleared.
As always, safety of our employees, members and guests is our first priority. It is suggested that you not get out on the roadways unless absolutely necessary.
Prior to traveling to any club facility during inclement weather, please call to make sure they are open.

FGCC Text Alert Service
The club would also like to remind all residents to sign up for the Text Alert Service. This will allow you to receive instant notifications to your mobile phone regarding emergency situations in the area or facility closings.
If you have not yet registered, follow these instructions:
1. From your mobile device, text “FGCC” to 855-746-3422.
2. You will receive a text message back to your phone from 855-746-3422. Reply to this message by texting the word “YES.”
3. This process will register your mobile number with the texting service.
We strongly encourage everyone in the household to enroll. Your information is strictly confidential and will not be shared.
We plan on sending test text alerts on a quarterly basis.

This FGCC text alert service will not be used for weather-related warnings. All residents are encouraged to contact local radio stations and/or reverse 911 for this service which typically includes information about school closings and delays also.
Go to www.cumberlandtn911.org to register your phone for the Reverse 911 service. It will direct you to Hyper-Reach, which will allow you to sign up for mobile alerts from the county’s portal.
