EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PROGRAM

Emergency Preparedness: 

 

The tragic events of September 11, 2011, the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and the spread of influenza have all demonstrated the need to have plans and resources ready for responding to an act of terrorism, disease, or a natural disaster.

 

The Sanilac County Health Department Emergency Preparedness Program plays a critical role in protecting the health and safety of Sanilac County residents by working with county emergency management, law enforcement, fire departments, hospitals, and schools, as well as regional, state, and federal agencies to develop and implement plans and resources for responding to large scale emergencies.

 

You can also do your part by making plans and keeping a basic kit in your home or vehicle that will provide food, water, and medicine to sustain you and your family through the first few days of a disaster until further help arrives. 

 

Additional information on how you and your family can be prepared and tips for creating your kit can be found in the following links:
