Sign Up for CodeRED Weather Warnings

CodeRED
National Hurricane Center chart

The Department of Emergency Services wants St. Mary’s County residents to be prepared and informed. In advance of inclement weather, residents should sign up to receive email warnings, updates, and special notices, including road closures, severe weather updates, Recreation and Park Notices, and CodeRED Weather Warnings.

The St. Mary’s County Government CodeRED Emergency Notification System is an ultra-high-speed telephone communication service used to contact citizens quickly. The system calls all or targeted areas of the county when vital information needs to be immediately relayed to citizens. CodeRED delivers a recorded message describing the situation in the affected area, which may include instructions requiring action on the part of the recipient.

Sign up here.

Residents can also sign up to receive these notifications via text through the CodeRED Mobile Alert app.

For more information on preparing for emergencies, go to the county website or call the Department of Emergency Services at 301-475-4200, ext. 2110.

Be Prepared for Storms – Know Your Zone

Summer storms can trigger severe winds, flooding, and other hazardous conditions. To be most prepared for the effects of a storm where you live, it is essential to Know Your Zone.

Know Your Zone is an easy tool from the Maryland Emergency Management Agency to help you determine the storm evacuation zone you live in based on your street address. Knowing your zone will help you avoid unnecessary evacuation travel, thereby reducing highway congestion, easing overcrowding at local storm shelters and boosting public safety. Visit the MEMA website at https://mema.maryland.gov/Pages/know-your-zone-md.aspx, click the ‘Find Your Zone’ button, enter your address on the map and see your search results.
