The Preparedness Section is responsible for maintaining emergency response plans that describe and guide the department's response activities within the scope of Emergency Support Function #8: Public Health and Medical Services.
We also rely on other preparedness professionals and organizations, including the Northwest Healthcare Response Network and city and county emergency managers, to coordinate and share resources and information during a response.
