Emergency Plans

The Champaign Health District develops plans and procedures to better prepare our county to respond, mitigate, and recover from all public health emergencies. Our activities include creating plans, gathering resources, and routinely training and preparing for emergencies. A serious emergency in Champaign County might take the form of an outbreak of serious infectious diseases, a terrorist event, or a natural disaster. These efforts are in collaboration with a host of community partners, such as the Champaign County Emergency Management Agency (EMA), the local Fire and Police departments, the Red Cross, other elements of the healthcare network, and many other community organizations.
