Emergency Preparedness

Being ready to respond to an emergency before the emergency occurs can help you, your loved ones, and our community make it through the event and recover faster after the emergency is over. Public Health is focused on preparing for and responding to events that pose a substantial risk to the health of our County through the provision of information, resources, and expertise.
