Public Health Preparedness


Prepare, Plan, Stay Informed

Wisconsin's public health preparedness program supports and enhances the capacity of the state, local public health departments/Tribes, and the healthcare system to prepare for public health threats and emergencies through planning, exercising, responding, and training.  Public health is better equipped, has improved its response plans, is planning regionally as well as locally, is training staff, and has exercised the public health response plans across the state.

If you have any concerns or questions, contact the
Columbia County Division of Health,

Wisconsin faces a wide range of threats, both natural and man-made. It’s important to be aware of the potential disasters that could strike the areas where you live or visit, along with how you can find emergency information when a threat is present.
