We recognize that residents are more than mere consumers of public health services. In addition to health services, our health department is involved in a variety of community-based activities that engage residents in the planning, evaluation and implementation of health activities in their communities. Many of those services and activities are profiled on this site.

Community Emergency Preparedness
The Community-Based Organization (CBO) Preparedness & Response Network of Alameda County links organizations and their employees, volunteers and clients with emergency preparedness and planning resources, free or low-cost training opportunities, and emergency notifications. The goal is to raise awareness about emergency preparedness and provide skills and resources to help community groups better respond during a disaster or emergency. Community groups are welcome to join our partner network and earn incentives for enhancing your emergency preparedness. Currently, this health department is soliciting CBO training topics.
