Why is EP important?

Public Health Emergency Preparedness is an important aspect of community health. Having the capacity to respond efficiently, effectively, and safely in a public health emergency can save lives and minimize the effects of a public health threat. A public health emergency can result from various hazards including natural disasters such as a hurricane, disease outbreaks such as pandemic flu, and deliberate acts such as aerosolized release of anthrax. In the event of a public health emergency we receive guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Our regional leadership group, called the Regional Preparedness Coordinator Committee, is made up of municipalities, fire departments, first responders, police departments, hospitals, family service organizations, colleges/schools, and County government.
