Part of your communication plan should include telephone numbers to contact the Division of Emergency Management and the Frederick County Health Department should it be necessary during an emergency. In any life-safety emergency, both agencies can be reached by calling 9-1-1. For urgent, but not critical emergency needs after normal business hours, you can call the non-emergency 24 hour number at 301-600-1603.
During normal business hours with non life-safety or critical needs you may reach us at the following numbers:
- Division of Emergency Management 301-600-6790
- Department of Emergency Preparedness 301-600-1746
- Health Department, Public Health Preparedness 301-600-6052
If you require documentation that you have coordinated with us for your records, please email your communication plan to EM@frederickcountymd.gov. Staff will review the communication plan to ensure our contact information is correct, then respond to confirm or request correction.
Long term care facilities and dialysis centers have additional coordination requirements! If you are with a dialysis center or long-term care facility and need more information on your coordination requirements, contact the Health Department, Office of Public Health Preparedness at 301-600-6052.
