Department of Emergency Services Announces September is National Preparedness Month


Centreville - Queen Anne’s County has faced several emergencies over the years from hurricanes and tropical storms to blizzards and flooding. Most recently a tornado went through several neighborhoods on Kent Island, but Queen Anne’s County citizens have shown their resiliency and come together as a community. Queen Anne’s County Department of Emergency Services is dedicated to doing their part in keeping the citizens and visitors of Queen Anne’s County safe but the citizens have an important part of this by making sure they and their families are prepared for any kind of emergency.

Every September we celebrate National Preparedness Month. The theme for this year is “Disasters don’t plan ahead. You can.” Queen Anne’s County Department of Emergency Services is asking all citizens to make sure they have a family emergency plan which includes how everyone would communicate and stay in touch if there was an unforeseen emergency. We would also like to see that every household have an Emergency Preparedness kit that include basic items that someone would need for at least 3 days such as water, food, medication, flashlight and a battery powered radio. Make sure when you are making your emergency plans and putting together your supplies that you take into consideration everyone in your household, including your pets and anyone with special needs. Have multiple ways of receiving information so you can stay informed. Radio, TV, social media, Citizen Alerts and a weather radio are all great ways to stay informed.

For more information you can follow Queen Anne’s County Government and Queen Anne’s County Department of Emergency Services on social media or go to
