During snowstorms, Montgomery County’s homepage features a “Winter Storm Information” graphic that links to up-to-the-minute news about the County’s storm response and provides useful links and information, including the County’s new snow map.
Now, following a storm, a new “Post Storm Information” icon will guide residents to services relating to cleanup, with links to helpful tips, procedures and phone numbers, including how to handle tree debris, reporting potholes, food safety tips and preparing for future emergencies.
The best source of information on the County’s services continues to be the 311 telephone information line, which can be accessed by calling 311 (240-777-0311 from outside the County) or online at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/311. During storms or other emergencies, 311 operating hours are extended as needed.
Residents are encouraged to also sign up for Alert Montgomery, which delivers important emergency alerts, notifications and updates through an e-mail account (work, home, other); cell phone; text pager; BlackBerry; wireless PDA; or text message. Or, follow Montgomery County on Facebook or Twitter.
