Baltimore County maintains a high level of readiness for natural and man-made disasters and a variety of hazards. The Emergency Operations Plan and Hazard Mitigation Plan Update describe the management and coordinated responses to such disasters and hazards.

Emergency Operations Plan

Baltimore County follows an Emergency Operations Plan in times of crisis, including natural disasters and severe weather emergencies.

The plan defines the roles and responsibilities of Baltimore County Government, private and volunteer organizations and state and federal agencies within the County.

Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Baltimore County Hazard Mitigation Plan Update profiles possible hazards that pose potential threats to Baltimore County. The plan includes explanations on the factors that create risk for each hazard and a history of major hazard events within the County.

Adopted, implemented and maintained on an ongoing basis, the plan will gradually, but steadily, lessen the impacts associated with hazard events in Baltimore County. The County's Hazard Mitigation Plan is in the process of being reviewed and updated.

Learn more about our plan, participate in the public survey and more. You can also submit comments on the plan by email to emergencymanagement@baltimorecountymd.gov.
