Public Health Preparedness


Organization, School & Business Preparedness

Diversity is one of our greatest strengths and enriches our community. It also means we may have different abilities to respond in an emergency. Is your organization or group capable of assisting others in an emergency? Are you able to reach your clients, employees or residents quickly with critical information? Can you provide support, such as translation or interpretation? Contact us if you are willing to help!
