The Department of Emergency Services is planning to host additional public outreach forums at other branches of Harford County Public Library after the first of the year.

"We look forward to holding these forums as a means of providing information and materials to the public, which we believe will help them gain greater understanding of the mission of the department and how we serve citizens throughout Harford County," Emergency Services Director Russell J. Strickland said in a statement.

The community outreach forums are free of charge and open to everyone.

For additional information contact Robert B. Thomas, Jr., coordinator of community outreach and public information at 443-617-1954.
