​Public Health Emergency Preparedness is a multi-faceted effort to enable emergency responders from federal, state, and local agencies to work together more effectively and efficiently to manage incidents no matter what the cause, size, or complexity. It involves planning for detection, prevention, response, and mitigation of natural and manmade disasters, emergencies, and terrorism events that impact the public's health.

Pandemic Influenza
Across the United States and around the world, communities are planning for the next pandemic of influenza. This page offers information on pandemic influenza, what can be done to prepare for the next pandemic and other resources that may be helpful for those involved in planning.

Cities Readiness Initiative

We encourage residents to be prepared in the event of any emergency.  In a major disaster, basic services and supplies we all count on everyday may not be available.  Drinking water may be contaminated.  The shelves at grocery stores could be empty.  Usual means of public transportation may be disrupted.  And our homes may be without power for days and perhaps weeks.  Given the possibilities, it is critial to be prepared in the event of an emergency.
