Public Health Emergency Preparedness Program
Wayne County Public Health (WCPH) plans for disasters such as disease outbreaks, natural disasters, man-made disasters and many more community hazards/ emergencies. Our department assists with these situations in a variety of ways such as providing health information, mitigation and hosting events (vaccine, testing, supply handout, etc.).
WCPH maintains and practices our response plans regularly to a variety of hazards and emergency situations that could affect our county. Our department is also a part of Finger Lakes Public Health Alliance (FLPHA), which allows public health workers from an unaffected county may provide mutual aid to another county in need of assistance.
