Emergency Preparedness

The health of a community depends in part on its resilience in the face of emergencies that can have widespread health consequences. Factors like eating right, exercising, and access to high quality health care are essential, but in the face of a community disaster, like a flood, blizzard, long-term power outage, or infectious disease pandemic, additional supports are needed to ensure sustainable community health. The Emergency Preparedness Work group knows that awareness of risks, community-level strategic planning, and personal preparedness are key to being safe at home, and safe across our community, so together we can weather any kind of storm.
