Emergency readiness contracts
The Baltimore Metropolitan Council is planning two solicitations for emergency preparedness. In one contract, the council wants a consultant to develop a regional protective action plan. It will provide guidance in prevention, response and mitigation activities for large-scale multijuris- dictional emergencies, including natural disasters, hazardous material incidents and terrorist attacks. In the second contract, the council wants crisis management software for the region to assist with emergency management activities. The requests for proposals are expected in early 2004.
