Md. Signs Disaster Relief Agreement With Target

BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland’s Emergency Management Agency is signing a formal agreement with Target Corp. to prepare for future disaster response and recovery.

The agreement announced Thursday calls for the government and the private company to work together on preparation and relief efforts during an emergency.

Target’s role is to partner with the state to identify needs and determine how to respond with supplies, personnel and support. The agreement says items donated in the past have been water, food, batteries, clothing and other supplies.

Target volunteers also can be provided to help emergency responders.
