Mosquito Control

              Calvert County will soon begin spraying for mosquitos.  For anyone wishing to have their area excluded, the rules have changed.  Regardless of whether you’ve made this request in the past, it will be necessary for you to go to the County website and print the exemption form.  Fill it out and submit it directly to the address on the form.  Copy and paste the link into your  browser (http://www.co.cal.md.us/index.aspx?nid=383).  Scroll down and click on “Exemption From Adult Mosquito Spraying.”

​​STORM PREP TIPS

Prepare for High Winds:

  • If necessary, protect all windows with shutters or 5/8 inch plywood panels.
  • Reinforce garage doors.
  •  Designate an interior room with no windows or external doors as a “safe room.”
  • Assess your landscaping and trees to ensure they do not become a wind hazard.
  • Prepare for Flooding
  • When you hear hurricane, think inland flooding.
  • Determine the elevation of your property to learn your vulnerability to flooding.
  • In flood-prone areas, keep on hand materials such as sandbags, plywood, plastic sheeting, plastic garbage bags, lumber, shovels, work boots and gloves.
  • Be aware of areas known to flood so your evacuation routes are not cut off.

As the Storm Approaches:

  • Most mobile/manufactured homes are not built to withstand hurricane-force winds. Residents of these homes should relocate to a safer structure when an evacuation order is issued.
  • Secure lawn furniture and other outside objects that could become projectiles in high winds.
  • Listen carefully for safety instructions from local officials. Monitor NOAA weather radio.
  • During the Storm
  •  Stay inside and away from windows, skylights and doors.
  •  Listen to a battery-powered radio for storm updates.
  • Have flashlights/batteries handy and avoid open flames and candles.
  • If power is lost, turn off major appliances to reduce damage when power is restored.

After the Storm

  • Stay away from downed or dangling power lines.
  • Beware of weakened tree limbs.
  • Open windows and doors to ventilate your house.
  • Use your phone only in emergencies.
  • Do not drive into water of unknown depth.
  • Restrict children from playing in flooded areas.
  • Do not use fresh food that has come in contact with flood waters.
  • Wells should be pumped out and the water tested before drinking. ​
