Executive Jan Gardner - Handle with Care Program 012219


County Executive Jan Gardner announced Frederick County’s launch of a program called “Handle with Care Maryland.” The program creates a quick and efficient way for law enforcement and emergency medical services to alert school personnel that a student was present at a traumatic incident.

“Our community’s future prosperity lies with our children, but traumatic events impact a child’s life in a negative way,” commented Executive Gardner.  “I’m proud to say that Frederick County is on the leading edge in taking an innovative approach to helping these children who face toxic stress.  It takes a village, and this is a village coming together to take care of our children.”
