The Citizen Corps Council of Anne Arundel County and City of Annapolis, in conjunction with the Office of Emergency Management, hosted its first annual Emergency Preparedness Fair on September 18th. Glen Burnie Improvement Association graciously let us use their grounds on Post 40 Road in Glen Burnie where the Big Glen Burnie Carnival is held yearly.
The participants included the Fire, Police and Sheriff Departments, BG&E, Northern Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce, Baltimore Washington Medical Center, American Red Cross, Departments of Health and Aging, Constituent Services, SALT Council, RACES, Ft. Meade, Maryland State Insurance, Coast Guard Auxiliary, Maryland Defense Force, Anne Arundel County Community Action, Animal Control, Citizen Corps Council, AA County and Annapolis Offices of Emergency Management, Maryland VOAD and local CERT members.
The Fire Department provided two fire trucks, an ambulance, decontamination unit and an antique fire fire truck. The Police Department brought their helicopter, Zodiac boat, SWAT truck, police car, motorcycle and bike patrol equipment. Animal Control brought the trailer that holds the equipment that will be used to house animals at a specific shelter during a disaster. The sheriff and police departments also had their crime prevention units there giving out information to the public.
The Anne Arundel County Alarmers provided free food and drinks and Bruster’s Ice Cream gave out free samples of ice cream.
There were approximately 200 people in attendance and we plan to increase that number next year. Please join us in thanking all the participants and the volunteers who made this possible. Without them, this could not have taken place.
The Second Annual Preparedness Fair scheduled for September 10, 2011 has been canceled due to saturated ground and uncertain weather. Stayed tuned for 2012!
