[ARCHIVED] QAC DES Asks Business Owners and Residents with Damages

The Queen Anne's County Department of Emergency Services is encouraging residents and businesses affected by the historic snowstorm which began January 22, 2016, to contact their office with information on the type and extent of loss they experienced as a direct result of the weather event, including losses in business revenue due to closures. This information will be used to determine areas around the state that may require assistance in the recovery process.

To be eligible for assistance a property must have suffered an uninsured loss of at least 40% of the fair market value of the structures on the property, said Director Scott Haas. Even if you don't meet these criteria we encourage residents and business owners to report their damages.

Queen Anne's County residents and business owners can contact David Rivett, Emergency Planner, at 410-758-4500 x1121 or e-mail at to provide information on their damages or losses. They should be prepared with an estimate of the amount of loss, as well as information on their insurance coverage, if any.

The deadline for reporting this information to the Emergency Management Office is Friday, February 19, 2016.
