Public Health Preparedness
The Public Health Preparedness (PHP) program is charged with the responsibility of coordinating the public health response to a natural or man-made disaster or emergency.

The Public Health Administrator has continued to chair the county-wide Health Emergency Response Task Force (HERT) which includes representatives from the 3 local hospitals, first responders, police and fire agencies, Coast Guard, County Emergency Management, and other agencies.

The Public Information Officer (PIO) sub-committee has also been facilitated by public health staff. The PHP program also assures public health response on a 24/7 basis to reports of communicable disease from the medical community.

Stay home if possible when you are sick. Visit for more information.
