Statewide Bomb Squad Policy Announcement

Prince George's County will serve as host to elected and public safety leaders from across the State of Maryland as they announce a new policy on Bomb Squads.  The State of Maryland Office of the Fire Marshal (OSFM) will provide a formal media advisory in the very near future about this event.

It is anticipated that Governor O'Malley, County Executive Baker and a slate of officials representing Fire/EMS Departments, Police, Homeland Security, Emergency Preparedness, Bomb Squad members as well as additional civic and elected leaders will be on hand for this announcement.

Numerous Bomb Squad vehicles from across the State of Maryland will be on display.  Agencies participating include; Prince George's County, State of Maryland, Montgomery County, Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Ocean City.

Save the date of August 9, 2011, 10:00 am, for an explosive announcement that is sure to include a "bang."  The location will be the Prince George's County Public Safety Communications facility at 17321 Melford Boulevard in Bowie.  The press conference is being coordinated through the OSFM.
