An event or situation designating a public health emergency would demand immediate action on the part of local, state, or federal health systems to maintain public health within the community and prevent or lessen injury or disease occurring as a result of the event. These emergency events or situations could be caused naturally or be man-made. Regardless, being prepared for these events will help to mitigate damage and harm done to people and property.
To Report a Local Health Emergency, dial 911 to be Connected to the Local Emergency Response System.
