In order for Maryland to more easily preempt emergencies, Gov. Wes Moore issued an executive order Monday establishing what will be known as state of preparedness declarations. “The safety and security of our residents is our top priority, and this executive order empowers us to act proactively in the face of potential threats,” Moore said in a statement Tuesday.
