Message from the Director
Talbot County Emergency Services is made up of highly professional and dedicated personnel who are proud to carry on the legacy of those who came before us creating the exemplary system which is in place in Talbot County.
The centerpiece in delivering 9-1-1 Call taking and Dispatching services, Emergency Medical Services, and Emergency Preparedness services is Safety, Speed and Accuracy. This is accomplished by remaining vigilant in pursuing new training, developing policies, guidelines, and checklists, testing and exercising, and reviewing our efforts through a detailed quality review process.
In Talbot County we are fortunate to have the support of the Talbot County Council, the Talbot County Paramedic Foundation, the Emergency Services Advisory Board, and the Local Emergency Planning Committee who provide us guidance and support.
Further, we are proud to support and serve alongside our response partners who include our volunteer fire and rescue service, our law enforcement community, our relief organizations and others in serving Talbot County.
Our pledge to our community is that we will continue to pursue innovation and excellence in the delivery of emergency services guided by principles of integrity, trust, and commitment.
