News Release, St. Mary’s County Public Information Office

Leonardtown, MD – The Department of Emergency Services wants St. Mary’s County residents to be prepared and informed. In advance of inclement weather, residents are urged to sign up to receive email warnings, updates and special notices including road closures, severe weather updates, Recreation and Park Notices and CodeRED Weather Warnings.

The St. Mary’s County Government CodeRED Emergency Notification System is an ultra-high-speed telephone communication service used to quickly contact citizens.  This system makes calls to all or targeted areas of the County when important information needs to be immediately relayed to citizens. CodeRED delivers a recorded message describing the situation in the affected area which may include instructions requiring action on the part of the recipient.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
