Inclement Weather Information

When Montgomery County Recreation must close or cancel programs due to inclement weather or other circumstances related to participant and staff safety the first notification is made through Montgomery County’s emergency notification system, Alert Montgomery. Alert Montgomery provides accurate, immediate emergency notifications from Montgomery County to your cell, work or home phone, via text, email or voice message. Real-time emergency updates can also be accessed at, by calling the Inclement Weather Line at 240-777-6889, through the department’s Facebook and Twitter sites or by calling the facilities directly. Given that participants and employees often travel distances and weather conditions may vary considerably across the county, residents are advised to exercise caution and consider personal safety as the first priority.
