About Emergency Preparedness

Central Utah Public Health Department is constantly working to improve plans to address bioterrorism, communicable disease outbreaks, and other public health emergencies. We work closely with Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC) to improve and update emergency response plans in each county.
We also collaborate with hospitals, medical providers, emergency medical services, fire departments, local emergency planning committees, law enforcements agencies, mental health, local politicians, schools , and other involved entities.
72hour kits yearly, we provide and obtain training for the health department staff and staff members of local support agencies. We plan several types of practice operations including table-top exercises and mock disaster drills with public health components. Below are some of the drills Central Utah Public Health has participated in as well as how you can be prepared.
