Public Safety Core Group Vision

Our vision is that Anne Arundel County will be the safest large jurisdiction in Maryland; that our citizens will be protected from criminals, fires, medical emergencies and disasters of all types, both natural and man-made; that our citizens will be supported if they are victims of crime, emergencies or disasters; and that we will assist other jurisdictions in their efforts to improve public safety.

Mission of the Office of Emergency Management

Our mission is to:

  • assure that County Government and the general public are prepared for any emergency
  • manage the County's response to major emergencies, and
  • coordinate with all relevant County, State and Federal departments, offices and leadership and maintain strong partnerships with other jurisdictions.
