Enhancing Emergency Preparedness
Maryland’s Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is on the front lines when handling crises. It was time for this Agency to have the access, resources, and support that it needs.
MEMA is now a Cabinet Agency– the Maryland Department of Emergency Management (MDEM). And, my bill also (SB658
) moved the 9-1-1 Board into MDEM as an autonomous agency– providing better partnerships as we transition to Next Generation 9-1-1.
