Winter Preparation
When there is a possibility of below freezing temperatures, please make sure you have disconnected any outside hoses and have turned off your outside spigots. Water in exterior hoses and pipes will freeze quickly in low temperaturesPlease also remember to keep heat on during very cold days in order to protect your water pipes from freezing. You should also open cabinet doors where water pipes are located on an exterior wall of the house. If you would like to winterize your home, Public Works will turn off your water service during regular work hours for a fee of $25. 

If you have a water leak or other public works emergency after hours, you can request help at the any of the following numbers: 443-496-1761, 443-262-2863 or 410-463-7026  (The 443 numbers also receive text.)

The Talbot County Emergency Services website and Facebook page will have the latest hurricane/storm information during an actual emergency:

Website: www.talbotdes.org

Facebook: Talbot County Emergency Services (DES)
Facebook is a good way to get updated information quickly throughout an event. The County will post changes and recommendations as needed.

Smartphone users can also download the Talbot County Emergency Services app, which will provide information during an event.

Once you have made yourself familiar with what to expect from emergency services and how to prepare for a possible evacuation, you can prepare your shelter in place emergency supplies kit and take steps to reduce impact to your property. Secure or store any outdoor items. Propane tanks should be strapped and anchored. It is very important in the event of a flood/wind event to reduce damage from floating and blown objects. Any private drainage areas should be free of debris and make sure your flood vents are open and clear of objects that would restrict water flow. Elevate any valuables you have in low lying areas. If your first floor is near ground level, consider moving irreplaceable items prone to water damage like pictures and documents to a second floor. The same goes for your emergency disaster supply kit - store in plastic buckets and keep as high as possible and somewhere that is easily accessible.
