Emergency Preparedness - Preparing for the Unexpected

Our programs primary concern is the health and safety of Coconino County citizens and visitors.

What We Do

These emergencies could include natural disasters (such as forest fires), transportation accidents (such as chemical spill due to a train derailment), epidemics (such as pandemic flu), or a terrorist attack (such as Anthrax tainted letters). We also collaborate on multiple preparedness and response activities, such as presentations, training, drills and exercises for the public, health care providers, health care facilities, community-based organizations and local governments to coordinate public health emergency preparedness activities.
