Division of Engineering

The Washington County Division of Engineering marked a year of impactful infrastructure improvements in 2023. Upon completion of the Professional Boulevard Bridge Over Antietam Creek, the County embarked on Phase II road construction, and the new connection between Yale Drive and Eastern Boulevard is now open to traffic. 

Intersection improvements at the Showalter Road – Crayton Boulevard Intersection and the Stotler Road – Halfway Boulevard Intersection further exemplify the County’s commitment to pedestrian safety and efficient traffic flow. (May be getting from Engineering.)
The County replaced two culverts on Mousetown Road and began construction on the Dogstreet Road Culvert replacement, anticipated for completion in 2024. 
A stream restoration project along Little Grove Creek off Leitersburg-Smithsburg Road was also completed in compliance with state and federal regulations.

Washington County continues to prioritize the safety and well-being of its residents. I am proud to highlight the significant strides we’ve made in bolstering public safety efforts. Our dedicated Sheriff Deputies in partnership with law enforcement agencies in the County, including our vigilant 911 dispatch team, have worked tirelessly to ensure the security of our communities, implementing proactive measures to address emerging challenges. Collaborative initiatives with fire and emergency medical service personnel have enhanced our ability to respond swiftly to medical emergencies, providing critical care when it’s needed most. Through strategic planning and community engagement, we remain steadfast in our commitment to creating a safer Washington County for all. Our first responders, there when you need them and perhaps even on the worst day of your life.

Vice President

The Office of Emergency Management

The Office of Emergency Management facilitated the purchase of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for both municipal police departments and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. Municipal departments received AEDs through the State Homeland Security Grant, while the Washington County Sheriff’s Office AEDs were procured with funding from the County.

Emergency Management also updated the Hazard Mitigation plan for Washington County. Public participation was fostered via an online survey and a town hall meeting, gauging community concerns and garnering insights into favored mitigation projects. This forward-thinking initiative, approved by municipalities, the county, and relevant authorities, aligns with Washington County’s commitment to proactive disaster preparedness.

In September, Emergency Management tested the aviation component of a comprehensive Sarex drill, orchestrated by the Maryland Department of Emergency Management. In spring 2024, Emergency Management will participate in an extensive exercise along the Potomac River. The exercise will take place in Washington and Frederick Counties. The extensive drill will simulate large-scale flooding, presenting us with multifaceted challenges requiring precise responses.

In October, Hagerstown Regional Airport, in collaboration with Washington County Division of Emergency Services and Washington County Office of Emergency Management, completed a simulated aircraft emergency disaster exercise at the airport. This exercise was performed to improve interagency coordination, evaluate response plans, and foster unity within our community in managing large-scale disaster efficiently.

In 2023, the Emergency Communications Center responded to a total of 270,668 calls, comprising 104,094 emergency calls and 166,574 non-emergency calls. Emergency calls were received through various channels, including 2,950 wire-line calls, 92,204 wireless calls, 7,505 VoIP calls, 1,008 text messages, and 59 calls from unknown sources. Additionally, the center made 63,909 outgoing calls, involving coordination with other agencies, callbacks to disconnected calls, and incident transfers to neighboring counties. Remarkably, the average wait time for emergency calls was less than 7 seconds.

In 2023 the Public Safety Training Center initiated the planning phase for construction of a Burn Building, Training Tower, Tactical Village, and Defensive Drivers Track. These developments signify the next phase of the Public Safety Training Center buildout, creating a cutting-edge training hub for our first responders.

The ongoing sessions of the Paramedic Academy and other academies at the Public Safety Training Center continues to increase the number of skilled public safety professionals in Washington County.

The acquisition of four new Division of Emergency Services boats through Capital Improvement Project reserves, reinforce our ability to navigate emergency situations efficiently. These new boats have been strategically located in Hancock, Sharpsburg, Potomac Valley, and Funkstown Fire Departments. The Williamsport Volunteer fire/EMS and Clear Spring Volunteer Fire Department each also purchased new rescue boats which were placed in service.

The Division of Emergency Services conducted many successful training sessions in 2023 including:  
  • A Hazmat Drill with DOT Foods, and several Emergency Boat Rescue training drills in March.
  • High angle rescue training drills were completed at the Martin Marietta Quarry in Pinesburg with several of our partner agencies.

Annual Hose, Pump, and Ladder Testing was completed in April 2023 for all County volunteer and the Hagerstown Fire Departments fire apparatus.

The Division of Emergency Services was also successful in securing a $1.9M Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) that has helped provide upgrades of the portable radios that are used by our first responders. With receipt of the new radios, Washington County now has portable radios that are also compliant with the new NFPA 1802 Standard for all firefighters and EMS responders.

Beginning in February 2024, Volunteer EMS Companies are set to become an integral part of the Washington County Division Emergency Services through a staffing transition. The transition will bring in 17 new employees to the County, will strengthen our force and further strengthen our partnerships with our volunteer companies. Plans are underway to station an EMS transport unit at the Rohrersville Fire Station. This initiative is part of a strategic collaboration with the First Hose Company of Boonsboro and the Boonsboro Ambulance and Rescue Service, who will station an ambulance within the Boonsboro Fire Department’s Rohrersville Station. The flexibility of our existing County career staff ensures optimized emergency responses, whether it’s staffing fire apparatus or the ambulance, depending on the nature of the dispatched call.  
Sheriff Brian Albert

“Our commitment to community safety has never been stronger. Through strategic initiatives and community engagement programs, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office has bolstered our efforts to create safer neighborhoods for you. Our focus on training and professional development ensures that deputies are equipped with the latest tools and techniques.From specialized training programs to adopting cutting-edge technologies, we’re training and equipping our deputies to better serve you.”

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office welcomed two new K-9 recruits during 2023: K-9 Kevin, a 1-year-old Belgian Malinois/Dutch Shepherd mix, trained in narcotics detection, patrol work, and tracking and K-9 Rose, a 2-year-old Yellow Lab, trained in narcotics detection, scent articles, and tracking.

In 2023 the Sheriff’s office held their first Trunk or Treat event, which was extremely well attended. The Sheriff’s office looks forward to continuing this event in 2024.

The Sheriff’s Office also introduced a new Buddy the Elf Singing Holiday Gram as a way to help sponsor the Shop with a Sheriff Program. Buddy visited offices across the county delivering his humorous songs and spreading holiday cheer. The annual Shop with a Sheriff event saw 16 children participating, the most to participate in the program to date. 

During 2023, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office handled 84,303 calls ensuring our community remained safe and supported.

“In 2023, our county experienced significant growth in economic development. We’ve witnessed the success of new businesses, from small enterprises to larger ventures.

We’ve invested in projects that enhance our community and I create an environment conducive to business growth. Moreover, our workforce development initiatives are shaping a skilled and dynamic workforce ready for the demands of the future job market. As we celebrate these accomplishments, we recognize that economic development is a continuous journey. Our focus remains on creating opportunities that benefit everyone in our community.”

2023 was another groundbreaking year for business and economic development in Washington County. Let’s dive into some of the highlights that have shaped our community.

In January, the Maryland Department of Commerce officially approved the County’s application to renew and expand the Hagerstown/Washington County Enterprise Zone. This program provides qualifying businesses with State income tax credits and local real property tax credits in return for job creation and capital investments made.

In May, The Board of County Commissioners approved the implementation of the Small Business Impact Grant program, made possible by the allocation of $5,000,000 of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding. 

The Department of Business and Economic Development sponsored the inaugural Hagerstown Start-Up Week and a Career Expo at Hagerstown Community College, where local innovators and entrepreneurs converged to spark the next wave of business ventures, fostering career growth and community development.

In October, the United States Department of Commerce’s Foreign-Trade Zones Board, approved the county’s application to restructure under the Alternative Site Framework. It encompasses 2,000 acres of already existing industrial property throughout the county and solidified our position as a global business hub.

Conair’s announcement of 700 new jobs added a significant chapter to our economic success, while the continued development of the new Hitachi Rail facility, which began in 2022, is on track to open in 2024 and is expected to create up to 460 new full-time manufacturing jobs in our county.

The Black and Decker facility, is set to undergo significant enhancements, as revealed by recent permit approvals. Black and Decker plans to create at least 100 new jobs with a capital investment of $140 million into our county.

In July, the Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved funding of $300,000 from the Washington County Hotel Rental Tax Fund for the Agricultural Innovation and Equipment Grant. This grant program is exclusively designed for agricultural businesses, farms, and farm owners in Washington County, Maryland. The grant program aims to support agricultural business growth and development.

Creek Bound Farms earned recognition as the 2023-2024 Farm of the Year, this designation is a testament to the excellence and dedication within our agricultural community.

The Office of Grant Management awarded over $2.5 million in allocations to local businesses through the Gaming Commission, secured $1,082,052 for community-based programs that benefit youth and families and administered the County Surplus Funding grant, providing $1,831,447 to local non-profit organizations.

As we look ahead, let’s build on this momentum to create a future that’s prosperous and inclusive for all. Thank you to our businesses, farmers, and citizens for contributing to the success of Washington County.

“In his 1795 address to local elected officials, President George Washington, our county’s namesake, spoke the following:

‘In every act of my administration, I have sought the happiness of my fellow-citizens. My system for the attainment of this object has uniformly been to overlook all personal, local, and partial considerations: to contemplate the United States, as one great whole: to confide, that sudden impressions, when erroneous, would yield to candid reflection: and to consult only the substantial and permanent interests of our country’

What President Washington spoke about in regards to a young nation holds equally true to Washington County nearly 250 years later. Working in the best interests of our citizens – and our county as a whole not just for the present but for future generations-often requires putting our own motivations aside. We can always do better on this front.

In order to bring about more transparency in local government, it is incumbent upon the residence of our community to become engaged citizens.

Attend a meeting. Be respectful, but ask those difficult questions, especially where you think we have a county government can do better in representing our constituents. After all, we are only human, and get it wrong sometimes!

Have you considered joining one of the counties more than 35 advisory boards and commissions? In such a role, you can give input to the county commissioners, and help make a difference in an area of Local government important to you. Your individual and collective input can create positive change.”
