Community Health, Recovery, and Resilience

Community health, recovery and resilience are all integral pieces to fostering sustainable communities. As we have seen with the Pandemic, maintaining the health of our citizens and being able to recover quickly from setbacks, means a stronger and more resilient community that can handle the impacts of emergencies and disasters. Coconino County is a leader in community health, recovery and resilience by offering multiple resources and benefits to community members to prepare for emergencies. The Coconino County Health and Human Services Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) page is a great resource.  

Community health, recovery and resilience will be a large part of the County's Climate Action and Adaptation Plan. If you would like to be involved with helping to develop Coconino County's Climate Action and Adaptation Plan, please contact Marty Johnson mjohnson@coconino.az.gov 

Indoor Environmental Quality

Carpets, paints, particle board, detergents, insulation, sealants and household cleaners can contain toxins that are emitted into the indoor air of a home or building. 

Other concerns with indoor environmental quality can include carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, radon, pet dander, mold, dust and pollens. Minimizing toxins and maximizing ventilation strategies are effective approaches to incorporating good indoor environmental quality in new and existing buildings.
