Public Health Emergency Preparedness

 

Public Health emergencies can arise anywhere. Natural, technological, and human caused disasters can impact Montana at any time. Public health hazards in Montana may result from communicable disease outbreaks, food and water contaminations, chemical spills, wild land fires and smoke, drought, flooding, earthquakes, tornados, and avalanches.

As part of the DPHHS Communicable Disease Control & Prevention Bureau, Montana's Public Health Emergency Preparedness works to help local and tribal health jurisdictions prepare for and respond to health emergencies, coordinate local surveillance and response systems, and keep Montana citizens informed of any public health related emergencies.

Federal grant funds strengthen public health and hospital preparedness on a state, regional, and local level throughout Montana, with the majority of funds distributed to local and tribal health partners.
