All news media representatives planning to cover events on Fort Sill must be escorted by a member of the post's Public Affairs Office. Call 580-442-2521 to request a PAO escort or email your request to usarmy.sill.fcoe.mbx.pao@mail.mil.

Members of the news media with a personal affiliation with the military (spouse or family member) must call for PAO escort when covering personnel news or events at Fort Sill. Due to the limited number of PAO staff members available as escort, media should request escort support as far in advance as possible. In case of emergency after duty hours, media should call 580-917-7960 or 580-917-2663.

As a responsible neighbor and government installation, Fort Sill provides the maximum support to local governments and groups that is allowable by law. Request support by calling our community relations specialist at 580-442-3024 or 442-4500.

Click on this link to our official request for support (FS Form 1418) from any of our units (the 77th Army Band, the Artillery Half Section or others) or for specific equipment.

Note that we take 90 days lead time for community support, so if your event is less than 90 days away, we probably will not be able to support it.

Fort Sill Public Affairs manages the Fort Sill Facebook (@officialftsill) and other social media properties. While we do accept content from around Fort Sill for publishing, it must first be assessed by our social media strategist.

Fort Sill Public Affairs offers training, platform audits and trouble shooting for social media managers on post. Contact 580.4426270 for more information.

The Soldiers and staff at Fort Sill have close working relationships with many local, national and international business, enterprises, entities and outside agencies. While law and regulations limit our links to commercial Websites, known as "dot-coms," Fort Sill has evaluated the business operations of these organizations and determined they meet all requirements for inclusion on the Fort Sill Internet Website. As you surf our pages, you may find these links on several different pages. The links are provided as a service to our Web readers. No one has received payment for including these links on our Website.
