Emergency Preparedness & Response (EP&R)


epr

What
The district EP&R program coordinates the response of the local health departments to any public health emergency through preparation, collaboration, education and rapid intervention.  We work with local, regional and state emergency response partners to enhance readiness and response to bioterrorism, infectious disease outbreaks, and other public health emergencies.  Some response measures include, monitoring and surveillance of all reportable communicable diseases and investigation of disease outbreaks within the community; dispensing of medication and immunization to limit disease transmission.  Funding to support these efforts are provided through grants from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Health Resources Service Administration and the U.S Department of Homeland Security.
