Public Health

Our mission is to:

  • promote public health
  • prevent the spread of disease
  • protect the environment, through awareness, compliance, education, training, and emergency response

Our public health infrastructure is important. Protection against disease and bioterrorism requires a strong public health system at the local level. Between the time first cases are identified and a second wave of people become ill, we need to figure out if an attack has occurred, identify the organism, and prevent further spread.
