Preparedness is a Priority
Being prepared for disasters, natural or man-made, is a public health priority.
Lane County Public Health (LCPH) collaborates with emergency preparedness leaders at the local, state and federal levels. Emergency preparedness and response plans are developed, exercised and revised to improve local responses to bioterrorism, chemical emergencies, infectious disease outbreaks, natural disasters, and other health risks.
LCPH works with healthcare organizations and other agencies across our county to assist in preparedness education, identify community needs, and maximize existing preparedness resources and networks.
