Emergency Preparedness

When disaster strikes, Public Health is prepared to quickly respond to protect you and your family from potential health threats. We have gathered a wide variety of information and websites you can use to find more information on preparing your family for emergencies.  We also have been developing plans for our County Health Department to use in case of emergencies.
