Cove Point LNG
Emergency Preparedness
The Calvert County Emergency Management Office has worked closely with the public safety agencies and Dominion Cove Point to develop emergency response plans in the event of an incident at the Cove Point liquid natural gas facility. These plans, which include emergency response and evacuation procedures, were developed in the event of an on-site, off-site or off-shore accident.

The Cove Point Emergency Evacuation Plan is available for view.

Emergency Notification
In the event of an incident that involves an off-site evacuation, residents will be alerted and provided information by the following methods:
    Calvert County ALERT
    Emergency Telephone Mass Notification System; if you are in the evacuation zone, you will be notified by telephone with instructions. The database is only as complete as the information on file. Please call 410-535-1600 ext. 2302 to ensure your information is captured.

    Route Alerting Process
    Emergency vehicles will be assigned to patrol each street in the evacuation zones to alert each household about the emergency. View the emergency evacuation map.

    EAS Media Announcements
    Media announcements will be made on each of the local EAS stations, as well as Comcast channel 6 in Calvert County.
