Public Affairs Office (PAO)

Fort Detrick, Maryland 21702
The Public Affairs Office serves as the primary point of contact for those who may be interested in learning more about Fort Detrick. This public information mission enables PAO personnel to work closely with local, regional, and national media representatives, to "tell the Fort Detrick story."
Command Information is the internal dissemination of news and information to better serve the needs and interests of the Fort Detrick community. Command Information products include The Standard newspaper, the Fort Detrick website, www.detrick.army.mil, and Fort Detrick's growing emerging and social media presences.
Community Relations is a key function of the Public Affairs Office. Coordinating tours of the installation, arranging Army participation in local events, and working with schools and other community-based organizations are only a few of the many ways in which the Public Affairs Office serves as a vital link between Fort Detrick and the surrounding communities.
Media Relations works with external media organizations to tell Fort Detrick's story through television and radio stations, newspapers and blogs. All media inquiries and concerns about public information should be referred to Media Relations at 301-619-2018.
