Emergency Preparedness

The Emergency Preparedness department plans for and responds to various forms of disasters that affect the community’s health.  The emergency may be a natural disaster (e.g. flood), a man-made accident (e.g. train wreck involving a chemical spill), a disease epidemic or pandemic, or an intentional act of terrorism involving chemical, biological, or radiological, devices.  EP staff work closely with local, state and federal partners such as the CDC, FEMA, GEMA, State Department of Public Health, local EMAs, fire, EMS, police, hospitals, and volunteer groups such as the Medical Reserve Corps to assess community vulnerabilities and to respond accordingly.  Activities include participation in exercises that simulate potential events to practice our response to them, working with hospitals to develop contingency plans for mass casualty patient surge situations, mass vaccination operations (e.g. H1N1), emergency shelter operations, community education, and more.
