Disaster response is an important part of public health. Our staff work to improve disaster response by creating long-lasting relationships with partners throughout the county. Together we attend trainings, workshops, conferences, and meetings with various levels of government and non-governmental organizations ahead of disasters to improve our ability to respond as a whole community. The only solution to the chaos created by a disaster is a well organized team of community partners. A team allows resources to coordinate help quickly and minimize confusion and chaos present immediately after a disaster.
"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail."
