Planning for Public Health Emergencies
The El Dorado County Health & Human Services Department, Public Health Division partners with hospitals, healthcare providers, and agencies, such as the Environmental Management Department, to develop plans for collaboratively responding during a local public health emergency.
We also work closely with the El Dorado County Office of Emergency Services (OES), which has a Countywide Disaster Plan. During a local disaster or emergency, OES organizes a response and calls on partnering agencies to participate in that response.
