Emergency Preparedness

The Emergency Preparedness Division is responsible for developing the agency's emergency response plans and conducting training and exercises with local and state response partners. The division also coordinates the Madison County Medical Reserve Corps, a volunteer group of medical and non-medical professionals who are ready to support local emergency response activities. MCPH partners with local emergency response agencies to prepare for and respond to public health emergencies. Funding for the Emergency Preparedness Division is provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Ohio Department of Health through the Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Program.
