There’s no cause for alarm – unless you’re one of the volunteers pretending to be displaced by a major storm, that is.
The Annapolis Office of Emergency Preparedness and Risk Management is hosting a citywide preparedness exercise on Tuesday.
The exercise is focusing on short- and long-term recovery efforts in the event of a major storm, and emergency personnel and volunteers are at sites around the city as part of the drill.
City officials and residents, including Mayor Joshua J. Cohen, members of City Council, department directors and volunteers, are involved in the drill. The city is asking the public to be aware that activity around the following locations will be part of the exercise:
• The Water Treatment Plant at 260 Defense Hwy, between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m.
• Pip Moyer Recreation Center, 273 Hilltop Lane, between 9 a.m. and noon.
• Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
