The role of the Dorchester County Health Department Emergency Preparedness program is to provide guidance and leadership before, during, and after disasters, on a variety of public health and medical threats to Dorchester County. Such threats include bioterrorism, infectious disease outbreaks, radiological incidents, and more. Activities include interagency collaboration with other local, regional, and state agencies on planning, exercises, and real-world responses to all hazards.

Disasters can occur at any time. You can feel helpless, or you can be prepared. It is up to you. The steps to readiness are not difficult. First, make an emergency supply kit for yourself and your family. Set aside supplies to survive three days at home. Water, food, first aid supplies, a flashlight, and a battery powered radio. Next, develop a family communications plan so your family can stay in touch during an emergency. Third, learn how to respond to the different types of disasters.

That information, along with details about disasters, kits, and plans are available at www.ready.gov.
