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). LCMRC logo
