The Prince George’s County Fire Department reminds citizens to use battery operated lights and flash lights in lieu of candles. A couple of post-storm fires that occurred were the result of residents using candles for light. In order to conserve cool air, residents are encouraged to use discretion in opening windows in order to keep cooler air inside as well as minimizing the time refrigerators and freezers are opened. Additionally, we have had close calls of lethal levels of carbon monoxide due to misuse of generators. We encourage all residents to use generators properly.

The Prince George’s County Department of Family Services has been regularly communicating with all senior citizen, assisted living centers, and nursing homes in the County. Residents are encouraged to check on the elderly, neighbors, family members and those who may have special needs.
Residents and media are encouraged to follow @CountyExecBaker on Twitter or “County Executive Rushern Baker” on Facebook for information and updates. The phone number to the Emergency Operation Center is 301-583-1950.
