Prepare....Plan....Stay Informed

  Since the September 11th attacks, public health emergencies continue to happen. 

   

    In whatever form they appear:   

            -outbreaks from food or disease        

          -terrorism acts     

          -weather related emergencies

            

 Preparedness is meant to ensure a swift, effective response.

Whether an outbreak of Ebola, or the Measles and Mumps outbreaks that occurred in numerous counties in Ohio, it demonstrates that no community is immune! 

The Logan County Health District has several emergency plans and works collaboratively with county agencies.  Plans are reviewed and updated annually.  Health District employees are trained and exercise the plans. 

Should the need arise for mass vaccination/prophylaxis, the Health District will assume the lead role.   We have plans in place to operate an Open Point of Dispensing (POD) site. What is a POD

To review and/or provide feedback on any of our plans, please contact the Emergency Preparedness Coordinator at (937) 651-6191.
