Public Health Preparedness

The Columbia County Department of Health Public Health Preparedness Program helps the county to get ready for emergencies by:

  • Planning for emergencies,
  • Conducting emergency drills, and
  • Educating community members about how they can be prepared.

We work with other agencies, such as Columbia County Emergency Management Office, the New York State Department of Health, the New York State Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Services, and many others to help the county prepare for and respond to emergencies.

For up-to-date emergency information, please check out the Columbia County 911 Facebook Page or the Columbia County Emergency Management Facebook Page.
