        A disaster can strike anywhere, whether it’s a hazardous material, weapons of mass destruction or a natural disaster like a tornado or flood.   Problems arising from emergencies and disasters pose a threat to human health, well-being, and survival.

    Emergency preparedness is a shared responsibility.  It is the goal of the health department to do our best to educate and help prepare our community in the event of an incident in our area.
