Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response

Public Health’s Emergency Preparedness and Response program is funded through PHEP, a cooperative agreement through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This program ensures we are working strategically at the agency, local, regional, state, and federal levels to protect public health systems from emergencies such as disease epidemics. This work involves assessment, training, planning, and engaging our local partners in technical and practical aspects of public health emergency preparedness and response. These activities build our capacity to provide support as needed to emergency management through leading a emergency support function annex (ESF-8).
