As many of you are aware St. Mary's County’s Next Gen radio system suffered yet another failure the morning of October 24th 2017. For years the County Fire and EMS departments have pushed for change only to be ignored by the county government and its elected representatives. This recent incident underscores the need for transparency and effective management of our County Emergency Services and Technology department. For years we have voiced our concerns again only to be ignored. Our county Fire and EMS system is at a cross road and depending on what takes place in the coming weeks may make it better or even worse.
We are asking for support and a few minutes of your time. Below is a petition that you can send to St. Mary’s County Commissioners to ensure your voice is heard. You can write your own or use the template attached. Download the template and email it to CSMC@stmarysmd.com use the subject line Petition for change.
