Local Public Health Agencies
Emergency Planning has become increasingly important in the United States due to changing and often unpredictable weather patterns, new disease threats, and the rise of global terrorism.
Local Public Health Agencies lead public health planning efforts. Public Health Emergency planning requires collaboration with other first responders, health care providers, municipal agencies, businesses, schools,and city leaders.
Your Local Public Health Agency can assist with locating training, emergency preparedness planning, and education. Local Public Health Agencies have developed an "All Hazards" plan, as well as working on planning for mass dispensing and pandemic influenza.
Contact your Local Public Health Agency to become involved with emergency planning in your community.
