Public Health Emergency Preparedness

The Public Health Emergency Preparedness program works to protect our community and its residents through activities focused on preventing, responding, and recovering from public health threats and emergencies. This is accomplished through:

  • Preparedness planning and readiness assessments, 
  • Local and State community partner collaboration,
  • Disease surveillance and epidemiology capacity,
  • Health risk communication and education, and 
  • Promoting a sense of personal responsibility in preparedness.
