Emergency Preparedness

The Calvert County Division of Emergency Management has worked closely with the public safety agencies and Dominion Cove Point to develop emergency response plans in the event of an incident at the Cove Point liquid natural gas facility. These plans, which include emergency response and evacuation procedures, were developed in the event of an on-site, off-site or off-shore accident.

The Cove Point Emergency Evacuation Plan (PDF) is available for view.

Emergency Notification

In the event of an incident that involves an off-site evacuation, residents will be alerted and provided information by the following methods:

Route Alerting Process

Emergency vehicles will be assigned to patrol each street in the evacuation zones to alert each household about the emergency. View the emergency evacuation map.
