State gets $248,375 grant for 'hazard mitigation'

The Homeland Security Department has awarded Maryland a $248,375 grant to assess the state's vulnerability to natural and man-made hazards and to develop "multi-jurisdictional" responses.

"Hazard mitigation planning is an extremely important aspect of emergency preparedness," Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin, a 3rd District Democrat who sits on the committee that oversees the federal security agency, said in a statement.
