Training and Exercise

Training is an essential part of Public Health Emergency Preparedness. By providing ongoing training, we can maintain a prepared public health workforce and community.

Public health staff participate in various preparedness trainings, including those provided by Federal Emergency Management Agency/Homeland Security that ensure compliance with the National Incident Management System.
