Health and Safety Topics

A public health emergency is defined as any event that has the potential to cause a significant impact on health, such as a naturally occurring infectious or contagious disease outbreak; extreme heat or cold, an earthquake, flood, or other natural disaster; or a terrorist attack using a biological agent or a chemical agent.

When disaster strikes, you want to be able to receive and share information with others.  You may need to call 9-1-1 for assistance, locate friends or family, or let loved ones know that you are okay. Communications networks could be damaged, lose power, or become congested. Use this guidance to increase your communication awareness.
