MD Gov, Moore enhancing response to potential hazards

November 27th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Governor Wes Moore has signed an order establishing a State of Preparedness.  The State may be declared by the Governor when there is heightened rist of disruption to the lives of Marylanders. It directs the Department of Emergency Management to coordinate services ahead of a potential impact from hazards or threats through early coordination and proactive protection. It also allows emergency services more flexibility to act without the declaration of a full State of Emergency.  When a State of Preparedness is declared Maryland residents and visitors should stay informed through trusted local and state communications and news sources.
