The Reality. The Reasons. The Response.
Hurricanes, tornadoes, fire, floods, winter storms...Mother Nature tests the readiness, response and resolve of individuals on a regular basis. Further, the events of September 11, 2001 brought the harsh reality of terrorism to America. As federal agencies constantly evaluate the security needs of our country, public health officials continuously review the many challenges presented by the potential threat of bio-terrorism, and the public health risk posed by the use of chemical, biological, nuclear, and radiological weapons.
The Northeast District Department of Health works with a number of federal, state, and local agencies to develop and refine plans to assure preparedness for all emergencies, including terrorist threats.
