Training and education play a vital role in preparing for public health emergencies and disasters. By continuously planning and preparing for potential events, we can improve our ability to respond effectively.
The Public Health Preparedness Training Program coordinates preparedness education and training opportunities for district staff and community partners to help prepare them to minimize death and disease in a public health emergency.
We practice PHD's Emergency Response Plan, collaborate with regional partners and participate in community outreach. PHD's Public Health Preparedness Program uses training resources from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Federal Emergency Management Agency, FEMA's Emergency Management Institute and Northwest Center for Public Health Practice to enhance our ability to respond.
