Emergency Preparedness

The Emergency Preparedness program coordinates planning and program development through local, state and federal offices to protect the health and safety of the citizens and visitors in the Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department service area. The Emergency Response Coordinator works with many community groups such as police, fire and rescue, emergency managers, elected officials, and schools to protect the health of our citizens. We work together to prepare and carry out disaster plans to protect our service area and to test those plans through simulated drills.
