During National Preparedness Month, the Anne Arundel County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) encourages all Anne Arundel County residents to take a proactive approach in personal preparedness. Throughout this month, preparedness tips will be shared via the Anne Arundel County’s Office of Emergency Management social media accounts.
