Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman Thanks Employees for Storm Response

Publish Date: 01/22/2014

Annapolis, Maryland (January 22, 2014)—Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman today expressed her sincere thanks and gratitude to employees who worked Tuesday’s snow storm.

  

“I am so proud of the hard work and dedication I witnessed from our employees responding to this snow storm,” stated County Executive Neuman.  “They are truly unsung heroes committed to serving the citizens of the County.  Many employees worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours, and continue to work as we get our roads cleared and back to normal operations.”

  

Anne Arundel County had between 4 - 8 inches of snowfall between late Tuesday morning and the early hours of  Wednesday morning.  High winds caused some drifting and the County is expected to experience below normal temperatures into Saturday. 

  

County Executive Neuman opened warming centers at all District Police Stations on Tuesday morning and they will continue to stay open at least for the next 24 hours due to the bitter cold.  The Pascal Senior Activity Center located at 125 Dorsey Road is also open as a warming center today from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m..

  

The County Executive activated the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Tuesday morning to coordinate agencies responding to the snow.  The EOC deactivated at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday morning and the Office of Emergency Management will resume normal operations.  Department of Public Works road crews will continue to clear and treat roads as necessary.

  

“The employees throughout the County worked very hard during this storm and I am extremely proud of the job the personnel in the EOC did for the citizens,” stated Chief Cornwell, Acting Director, Office of Emergency Management. “I would also like to thank the Department Heads for their unselfish support of the EOC and the Office of Emergency Management by dedicating resources to carry out our mission.”
