Public Health Preparedness
Brunswick County Health Services works hard to ensure our department is prepared to respond to all public health emergencies including infectious, occupational or environmental hazards. To date, our program has responded to a host of emergencies to include Hepatitis A, Zika, COVID-19, hurricanes, and severe weather as well as nuclear events.
During each event, we serve as the department’s coordinators to 1) monitor and respond to the event 2) provide assistance and support to all partners and 3) provide guidance and recommendation for key decisions makers.
Before and after events, we develop strategic plans to outline how our department will respond to each event. At the conclusion of developing a plan, we train and exercise to test our overall readiness. Exercising our plans allows our team the opportunity to evaluate the department on overall readiness to ensure we can respond to any event.
