Thank you to everyone who came out to National Night Out at the Lakeland Community Park last night. Between talking with our community members, playing basketball, and the community walk, we had a great time.
Thank you to Cecil Brathwaite of Brathwaite Photography for taking the pictures posted below at last night’s event.
On Friday, July 29, 2016, the Office of Emergency Management will conduct a training exercise at Maryland Stadium. The purpose of this training exercise is to safely evacuate fans out of the stadium and into nearby buildings/structures. As some may recall, on September 12, 2015, we encountered a weather emergency during a home football game. There was a storm heading our way that included lightning, which led to the evacuation of our football stadium. This was the first time in our history that we had to evacuate fans out from the stadium during a football game.
The training exercise is scheduled to begin at approximately 1:30 p.m. and will end at approximately 3:30 p.m., weather dependent. During this exercise, a small portion of Stadium Drive will be blocked off between the north entrance of Stadium Drive Garage and parking lot Q. The service road that wraps around the stadium will also be blocked off to vehicles and pedestrians. There will be staff on site to help with alternative routes during the course of the exercise. Once the exercise has ended, the roadways will re-open.
