Emergency Preparedness

Description
Being prepared for natural and man-made disasters is a public health priority at CHD. We collaborate with other emergency preparedness leaders at the local, state, and federal levels to develop, exercise, and improve local responses to chemical emergencies, infectious diseases, natural disasters, and other health risks. Our staff are active members of the Union County Emergency Preparedness Coalition, whose membership includes Union County Emergency Services, Grande Ronde Hospital, and the American Red Cross. This coalition meets regularly and works on county-wide preparedness planning and partners together on exercises and drills so that our responders are ready in the event of an emergency.

Emergency preparedness isn't just for first responders. We feel it is important to educate community members on how they can be prepared when natural and human disasters strike, so that we are more resilient as a community during an emergency. Individuals and businesses can get better prepared by signing up for the free Do 1 Thing program, is a 12-month program that makes it easy for you to prepare yourself, your family, and your community for emergencies or disasters.
