Emergency Preparedness

Berrien County Health Department's Emergency Preparedness Program protects the public's health and safety by preparing for all types of emergencies such as natural disasters, disease outbreaks, and/or chemical spills. 

Community Readiness

The Emergency Preparedness Program enhances emergency readiness in the community by developing strong relationships with local partners, first responders and educating the community. We encourage all citizens to learn what type of emergencies impact their community, school, workplace and/or business. Being knowledgeable about your community’s hazards and vulnerabilities will help you be ready during a crisis. To develop a plan, visit Ready.gov.
