​​​Although different types of disasters may require slightly different preparations, these general preparedness guidelines should help Maryland residents be ready for any disaster natural or man-made.

Updates During Disasters

MEMA is pleased to add to our web site a valuable service offered by FEMA. FEMA now offers a free service called Updates During Disasters. When a disaster is declared in a state or region FEMA will generate e-mail bulletins to​ keep citizens updated about how to obtain assistance and reduce loss of life and property. MEMA and FEMA both agree it is important to stay informed before, during and after any disaster. Click here to access this free service.
