Public Health Emergency Preparedness & Response


The Capital Area Public Health Network (CAPHN) provides leadership and coordination to improve the readiness of partners to mount an effective response to public health emergencies and threats. The Public Health Emergency Preparedness initiative of CAPHN includes the maintenance of a regional annex, which includes plans for response to and recovery from public health emergencies that impact communities in the region. CAPHN also works with local Emergency Management Directors to strengthen and develop regional sheltering plans to respond to the needs of the communities during events.
