"On behalf of the Anne Arundel County Office of Emergency Management, I am writing to you today in order to express our support in your efforts to better prepare the local business community. By preparing local businesses and strengthening public/private partnerships, your organization will benefit businesses, but also local governments and communities. As you know, the business community will play a large role in the recovery efforts after a major catastrophe. The quicker the business community can recover, the quicker they can provide much-needed essentials to the local communities, thus enhancing community recovery and reducing the strain on local governments."
