Public Health Emergency Preparedness

Public health professionals are faced with the challenge of finding ways to maintain the progress made towards improving public health while at the same time addressing new, and sometimes re-emerging, public health threats including acts of bioterrorism.

   

Since 2002, the health department receives funding specifically for improving disease surveillance, planning for public health-related emergencies, and coordinating response with local, state and national emergency planners.

   

To learn more about public health threats, please view any of the resources listed below. To learn more about our preparedness program activities, view our Emergency Preparedness Program Annual Report or call us at (231) 724-1234.
