Howard County Emergency Plans

Howard County recently completed a 2015-2020 Emergency Management Strategic Plan that provides better definition to our next five years. The plan is centered around ten strategic goals, and was developed with the input of numerous county stakeholders.

The Howard County Office of Emergency Management is proud to present the Howard County Emergency Operations Plan, which was officially signed by Executive Allan H. Kittleman on June 9th, 2015. This plan reflects a very lengthy process to improve the emergency response capabilities within Howard County and involved numerous county agencies and external partners.
