Anne Arundel County Celebrates National Preparedness Month

(Glen Burnie, MD) - The month of September is recognized as National Preparedness Month, an annual opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of always being prepared for disasters and emergencies. Preeti Emrick, Director of the Office of Emergency Management, urges community members to take emergency preparedness seriously, “as the severity and frequency of severe storms continues to increase, we need to make sure our community is prepared for anything. Disasters start and end at the local level so residents, businesses, and County agencies all have to be prepared to respond when they occur.”

“Preparing as individuals can save lives and avoid putting our first responders in harm’s way as they respond to emergencies,” Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman said. “We all need to do our part this month to help make Anne Arundel County more resilient.”

Throughout this month, we will help our County prepare at the individual level by hosting our Emergency Preparedness Expo, attending community events, giving preparedness presentations to community groups/organizations, and by sharing preparedness tips on our social media accounts. Check out our social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Nextdoor, Youtube, and TikTok for preparedness tips and information. Visit our website for more information about National Preparedness Month and our calendar of preparedness events throughout the month.
