Anne Arundel County Emergency Shelter Remains Open

County Executive Makes Decision Based On High Number of County Residents Without Power

Annapolis, MD (February 13, 2006) - Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens announced this morning that the Earleigh Heights Volunteer Fire Station, located at 161 Ritchie Highway North, will remain open until further notice as a temporary shelter for residents without power.

"So many Anne Arundel County residents remain without power that it is important to provide a safe and warm environment for those in need," said Ms. Owens. "BGE continues to work on the downed lines, but the most recent information indicates, at lease 16-thousand residents will have to spend another cold night without power, and the Emergency Shelter will remain open and available to those who need a warm, safe place to go."

Residents staying at the shelter must bring the following the Early Heights Volunteer Fire Station:

  • Bedding
  • Medicines
  • Sanitation and hygiene supplies
  • Ready to eat snacks
  • Things to keep children occupied

Residents with pets should call (410) 222-8040 to make accommodations for their animals.
