Nursing/Medical Division – Ready for Emergencies
The Huron County General Health District prepares for emergencies by developing emergency plans with local, regional and state partners. Those plans guide the response to public health emergencies.
Emergency plans address tracking and controlling communicable diseases, continuing normal health department operations, communicating with community leaders, the medical community and the public, and isolating or quarantining people carrying certain life-threatening infectious diseases. We coordinate with other first responders and with a volunteer Medical Reserve Corp. In the event of a public health emergency, the community can look to the health department to provide accurate information about the emergency and about what to do.
We are here to help the community, businesses, schools, persons with functional needs, and families learn how to prepare for an emergency. For more information on how you can prepare for emergencies, see the ” page.
