    Emergency Preparedness – Plan and Prepare

     

    Welcome to Jefferson County Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response! Our staff is here to serve the public health needs of the community before, during and after an event. "We are dedicated to improving our capabilities and working with others to reach the highest safety and security levels for the citizens of Jefferson County," says Dr. Mark Johnson, JCPH Director.

    Emergency Preparedness involves the resources of public health, emergency response teams, law enforcement, community members and our dedicated volunteers. The Jefferson County Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response website is your resource for information, planning and response needs.

    JCPH works in close partnership with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Colorado Office of Emergency Preparedness. In addition the Colorado Health Emergency Line for the Public managed by CDPHE and the Rocky Mountain Poison Center is available to provide consistent up-to-date information to the public on such topics as anthrax, avian flu, hantavirus, influenza/pneumonia, tuberculosis, ricin, SARS, mold, plague and other health threats
