PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY RESPONSE
The division of Public Health Emergency Response is responsible for emergency preparedness and response. The goal of this division is to make Madison County Health Department ready to respond in the event the county is impacted by a bioterrorism incident, natural occurring disaster, a new and emerging infectious disease, and/or any disease outbreaks. The health department will work with other agencies as a team to provide as much preventative health protection for its citizens as scientifically possible. This includes information, early detection, and/ or the appropriate use of interventions such as preventative medication and vaccines, contact tracing and quarantine, safe food and water.
