Our alert notification system, RainedOut, has notified Charles County Government that they will begin charging a fee for text alerts on January 1, 2020. To avoid these fees, we will be using Charles County Government's existing Citizens Notification System (CNS) to notify subscribers regarding Recreation and Parks at no additional cost.

Beginning January 1, 2020, Recreation and Parks will no longer be using RainedOut to provide any Recreation and Parks alert notifications. This includes weather cancellations. To continue receiving alert notifications related to Charles County Recreation and Parks, existing RainedOut subscribers MUST subscribe to the county's Recreation and Parks CNS alert notifications.
