Public health emergency preparedness involves planning and implementing programs to rapidly detect, investigate and control several threats that may endanger the health of the public. These threats include emerging infectious diseases, disease outbreaks, pandemics, chemical or radiological exposures, and bioterrorism. The Boone County Health Department is working with medical and emergency response partners at the local, state, and federal level to ensure the most effective response to public health threats.
Public Health Departments play critical roles in preparing for and responding to health disasters. Examples of the roles they play include the following:
The Boone County Health Department has become better prepared for disasters, mass terrorism response and pandemics. We train to learn about threats, such as (biological, chemical, radiological, and nuclear weapons) and how to react so that we can take care of our community effectively. We also train to become better prepared for natural disaster, (storms, floods, drought), communicable disease outbreaks and pandemics.
The Boone County Health Department have partnerships with our local authorities, surrounding counties, and the WV State Health Department. We exercise scenarios to help us stay prepared and trained for a disastrous event.
In the event of a natural or man-made disaster, the health department as well as all local emergency services, will need as much volunteer help as possible. If you are interested in helping in any way, log onto wvredi.org and register.
Preparedness for public health emergencies is a priority for the Boone County Health Department.
We offer Tuberculosis (TB) Testing for those who need a skin test.
