Emergency Preparedness and Response Program

The Emergency Preparedness and Response division’s primary focus is to promote,
educate, serve as a resource, and collaborate with other organizations in an all-hazards
approach to emergencies within Jefferson County.
  • Our emergency preparedness staff promotes an all hazards approach to being
    prepared for all types of emergencies, including natural and man-made
    disasters, hazardous material exposure, and injury and disease prevention
    within Jefferson County.
  • We focus on educating the general public on developing and exercising
    safety plans and creating emergency supply kits through various outreach
    events, media outlets and material distribution.
  • We serve as a resource for public health partners such as hospitals, schools,
    civic groups, and businesses for preparedness trainings, educational materials
    and presentations.
  • We collaborate with organizations to raise the public’s awareness of potential
    emergencies, advantages of being prepared, and the expectations of local
    response.
