May 6th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan today announced the rescission of Executive Order 01.01.2015.14, ending the State of Emergency in Baltimore City that was declared on April 27, 2015.

“Last week, Maryland citizens and the entire nation watched as Baltimore was consumed by violence and tragedy,” said Governor Hogan. “The effort to restore calm and order to Baltimore was incredible and I cannot thank the community leaders, first responders, and all the men and women in uniform enough for they work they did to make it happen. Today we are pleased to announce that the city and its residents can begin to heal and rebuild in a peaceful and safe environment.”

In response to the protests which began in Baltimore City on April 23, Maryland agencies began coordinating at the State Emergency Operations Center, which had been fully activated at the Maryland Emergency Management Agency.

On April 25, at the request of Baltimore City, Governor Hogan signed an Executive Order declaring a State of Emergency and activating the National Guard to address the growing violence and unrest. Immediately following this official action and in order to address the crisis in the most effective manner possible, Governor Hogan and his executive staff moved the Governor’s Office from Annapolis to offices on St. Paul Street in Baltimore.
