Maryland Emergency Preparedness Network Features 211

Learn about the ways the Maryland Information Network, which powers 211 Maryland, connects Marylanders in an interview with the Maryland Emergency Preparedness Network (EPN). The network helps Maryland’s most vulnerable populations, the homebound. The group helps homecare providers and their patients be better prepared in an emergency.

Their fall newsletter features the ways 211 connects Marylanders to essential resources through the 211 hotline and the MdReady program’s ability to connect Maryland through text message before, during and after a public health, public safety, or weather emergency. That 211 texting program is in partnership with the Maryland Department of Emergency Management.
