Emergency Preparedness

Lake County Public Health prepares for natural and man-made disasters and disease threats, working collaboratively with other emergency responders, healthcare facilities, and local citizens in order to serve the community.

Lake County’s Public Health Preparedness and Response program focuses on planning the response to disease threats, such influenza pandemics, bioterrorism, and health hazards associated with natural disasters (earthquakes, floods, wildfires and others).

Hospital Preparedness Program

The purpose of the Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) is to enhance the ability of hospitals and health care systems to prepare for and respond to bioterrorism and other public health emergencies. Program priority areas include interoperable communication systems, National Incident Management System compliance and training, bed tracking, volunteer management, mass fatality management planning and hospital evacuation and shelter-in-place planning. During the past five years HPP funds have also improved medical surge capacity and resources, decontamination capabilities, isolation capacity, pharmaceutical supplies, training, education, drills and exercises.

Hospitals, outpatient facilities, health centers, poison control centers, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and other healthcare partners work with the appropriate state or local health department to acquire funding and improve healthcare system preparedness through this program.
