As some of you may know my platform is emergency preparedness and prevention. Last week the state of Maryland announced that in all 23 counties you can now text  9-1-1 if you are unable to call. This is an amazing advancement in the ability for the safety of all Marylanders. The ability to text 9-1-1 gives those who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or other the ability to get help in an emergency. While no one ever wants to have to call or now text 9-1-1 it is now an option for all of in Maryland. Remember that if you do have to call or text 9-1-1 try to stay calm and answer all of the dispatchers questions fully. Now remember call if you can text if you can’t if you ever find yourself in an emergency in Maryland.
