WELCOME TO THE WICOMICO COUNTY
WICOMICO COUNTY LAUNCHES NEW EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
REGISTER NOW TO RECEIVE ALERTS!
The Communicator System is a citizen notification method that will automatically notify the citizens of Wicomico County of important information in the event of an impending or occurring emergency via telephone communications. The system uses telephone company phone listings and addresses to place calls to residences in specific areas or countywide. Telephone companies do not maintain data bases for cellular phones that include addresses. Therefore, cell phones must be added with an address in order for a cellular customer to receive the informational call.
If you wish to receive these emergency messages on a cell phone, you must register your cell phone with the Department of Emergency Services (DES).
To register you must go to the DES web site at http://www.wicomicocounty.org/
Once you have logged in to the portal, follow the instructions to register your cell phone.
*Individuals previously registered with the Reverse 911 System will need to re-register with the new system. For more information, contact Wicomico County Emergency Services at 410-548-4820.
FLU SEASON IS HERE - LEARN HOW TO PROTECT YOUR HEALTH
FLU PREVENTION TIPS
Wash your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
Practice good health habits. Get plenty of sleep and exercise, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat healthy food.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
If you are sick with flu-like illness, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medicine.
The most important thing you can do to prevent the flu is GET VACCINATED!
