Hi I'm not sure if that prison is on lockdown but I think as they have suspended visitation that is a good sign that it is. You can write to him as he will still receive letters during lockdown.

That message usually means they are on lockdown. I don’t have any experience with the prison that you mentioned but the moderator of this forum will see your message at some point and move it to the correct place and then hopefully you will get some answers. Good luck!!!!

FCI Fairton doesn't have enough activity to have its own sticky/forum, so this is the correct place for your question. I agree that suspending visits almost always means the prison is on lockdown.

I just joined this site today I'm not quite sure how to use it but my question was the same my husband is there and I have not heard from him since Wednesday and it's not like him not to say something everyday. I called as well and asked if he was still there and if they were on lockdown the co said that he was still there but he could not give me any information concerning a lockdown

Default Fairton is locked down

Fairton is on lockdown. I have not heard from my husband since Tuesday afternoon and he emails at least 20 times per day. They are not answering the phones or replying to emails. I contacted the Northeast Region and complained that the facility was not being responsive to the public and was told that they were on lockdown. I had a visit scheduled for this weekend, with non refundable flights coming from Georgia. Now my son and I will have to make a vacation of it because i'm not wasting $600 worth of Delta flights.

Welcome to prison Talk and the federal forums. Fairton's bop web page
https://www.bop.gov/locations/institutions/fai/

has the "all visits are suspended" banner which almost always signifies a lockdown.

Lockdowns are not unusual in federal prisons, and much more frequent in some of them. Try to anticipate problems by purchasing refundable plane tickets, travelling by AMTRAK, whatever. If flights are available on Southwest, all tickets are refundable, but then you pay the current fare for the new ticket, which is usually higher.

My visit is still on. Apparently me calling Washington, DC and the Northeast Region and the DOJ made them uncomfortable. They had him call me and tell me our visit was still on.
