Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker Announces CountyClick: An Online Version of 311

Citizens and Residents now have a way to submit non-emergency requests anytime and anywhere
 
 

Upper Marlboro, MD – Today, Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III, announced the completion of CountyClick, a citizen-centric online system designed for residents to submit non-emergency service requests. This new online system is the first phase of the County’s 311 call center which is slated to launch later this year.

CountyClick will allow citizens to submit service requests for non-emergency issues such as potholes, overgrown grass, etc. to the appropriate agency for service or assistance.  Residents, businesses and visitors will now have access to many of the services provided by the government via a centralized portal, minimizing the need to search the County’s web site for an agency’s contact information or to obtain a list of their services.  
 
“CountyClick will make it easier for people to report various concerns related to property or community standards ,” said Baker.  “This is another example of my administration’s commitment to making government more efficient and accessible.  Residents now have a more responsive way to submit their requests from home, work or from a mobile device.  Later this year we will open our 311 call center to accept non-emergency service calls in one centralized location.  CountyClick gives our residents and businesses access to many government services anytime and anywhere.” 

By using CountyClick, citizens can:

  • Browse through questions and answers in various categories 
  • Enter requests for service
  • Track status of service requests
  • Upload photos and enter details

CountyClick is also accessible through mobile applications on iTunes and Google Play.  Once the mobile app is downloaded people can register this user account both through the mobile app and the online portal.  Using GPS, the mobile app will recognize a location then prompt through the remaining steps for entering a service request. 

Citizens can enter a request or browse information in 15 categories, ranging from Blight, Code Enforcement & Property Standards to County Records.  Each service request also has general information that is designed to educate citizens before and after they submit their request.

To access CountyClick use the following links:

The Office of Homeland Security Encourages Citizens to Register for NotifyMe Prince George’s and Volunteer for CERT

Upper Marlboro, MD – In the wake of the June 22nd microburst in the Bladensburg, Cheverly and Hyattsville, Maryland area and the June 29th derecho that continues to affect the County; the Office of Homeland Security encourages residents to register for the NotifyMe program. NotifyMe Prince George’s will deliver important emergency information and updates to your registered devices and will enable participants to  receive messages that pertain to amber alerts, severe weather, school and government delays and closings, severe traffic, utility interruptions and emergency preparedness measures.

 

Our NotifyMe proved effective in warning citizens during the June 22nd microburst by notifying residents prior to the severe weather. A NotifyMe Alert of Severe Weather in Prince George’s County was sent out at 7:30 p.m. Friday evening prior to the 8:07 p.m. microburst.

 

Social Media

The Office of Homeland Security and the Office of Emergency Management uses social outreach blog(https://pgcountyofficeofhomelandsecurity.wordpress.com/) and accounts on:

For those who want to take a more active role in the wake of a natural disaster, the Office of Emergency Management wants to remind citizens that the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) offers training.

 

CERT History

 

The CERT concept was developed by the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) in 1985 after recognizing that citizens would have to rely on themselves during the early stages of a catastrophic disaster.  The LAFD decided that some basic training in disaster survival and rescue skills would improve the ability of citizens to survive until first responders or other citizens could arrive. This training proved to be so beneficial that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) felt that the concept and program should be made available nationwide and applicable to all hazards.

 

With roughly 2,400 members, Prince George’s County has one of the largest and fastest growing CERT programs in the nation.

 

Those citizens interested in receiving CERT training can email the CERT Coordinator, Calvin Hawkins at certpgmd@gmail.com.
