Welcome to Harford County Department of Emergency Services

The Harford County Department of Emergency Services is a multi-component Department. The Department is comprised of the 9-1-1 Communications and Dispatch Center, the Office of Emergency Management, and Hazardous Materials Response Team (HAZMAT). All three components have both regular day-day functions as well as emergency response function during and after an emergency or disaster. The Harford County Department of Emergency Services and its components are staffed by public safety professionals, using state-of-the-art technology. Even though each of the three divisional components has different roles and responsibilities they each share one common function to protect and serve the citizens of Harford County.

The Department of Emergency Services during an emergency or disaster operates and staffs the Harford County Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC is a command and control center where representatives from Harford County government and its agencies as well as the State of Maryland, the local municipalities, and other vital agencies and organization continue to run the government and direct resources for responses and recovery operations during an emergency or disaster.

Emergency preparedness is the responsibility of every citizen. Therefore, the Harford County Department of Emergency Services endeavors to continually to educate and inform the public on how to be properly prepared for all types of emergencies and potential disasters that could befall Harford County.

Winter Time Preparedness Tips
Winters in Harford County can mean snow or subfreezing temperatures, as well as strong winds or even ice or snow storms. With winter season comes the need to prepare your home, automobile and family to deal with the adverse weather conditions. Planning ahead for winter storms is key to your family's safety.  Do you have your snow shovels handy?  Keeping a spare blanket and a shovel in your car's trunk is just a good idea during the winter season.  As we've seen recently, snow and ice storms can rapidly impact traffic patterns and that blanket could come in handy!  Check the Emergency Preparedness brochures in the "Download" section of the webpage for additional tips.
