During the last week of May 2017, many of our staff attended the annual Maryland Emergency Management & Homeland Security Symposium with emergency management agencies & partners from across the state. This year, we brought awards home with us:

OEMHS received the "2017 Maryland Emergency Management Project of the Year" award for our Private School Alert System. Our project was up against some other fantastic public safety projects by our state & local emergency management partners. We are proud of the work that our team has done on this project so far and we're beyond honored to receive this award.

OEMHS has been working to enroll private schools into our Private School Alert System so they can receive the same public safety information as the public schools in their vicinity. Currently, there are 116 private schools registered in this system. OEMHS sends out quarterly tests for this system and requests that private schools update their administration's contact information periodically. ♦
