Who we are and what we do

The Public Health Preparedness Program is responsible for planning, responding, and aiding in the recovery from major incidents impacting the public’s health. A large part of what we do involves taking a positive and proactive approach to help individuals, families, businesses, and communities prepare. The Public Health Preparedness Program is engaging in collaborative, community focused emergency health planning to address a wide range of public health emergencies, including natural disasters, terrorist attacks, and pandemics. We are creating plans, testing them, and conducting training in order to better protect the residents of Bucks County.
