Health Service Region 1 - Public Health Emergency Preparedness



The HSR 1 Public Health Emergency Preparedness Team responds to all-hazards emergencies, such as natural disasters, infectious disease outbreaks, and other public health threats. The PHP team also collaborates with local governments (and multiple other agencies within the region) through the development and exercise of a comprehensive public health emergency preparedness and response plan.


Adopt - A - Pod

A Point of Dispensing or POD is where members of a community go in a disease outbreak to receive pills or shots. The primary purpose of a POD is to decrease the number of individuals from within the community who may become ill.

Adopt a POD by signing up today as a medical or non-medical volunteer for your county. If there is a large-scale disease outbreak, your community will need your help.
