Emergency Preparedness and Response

Natural and man-made disasters can happen suddenly and at anytime. To ensure the safety of Oklahomans, our county health department works closely with state, local, tribal and community partners to plan and prepare for responses to environmental, health, and medical emergencies.

What is a public health emergency?

An event, either natural or manmade, that creates a health risk to the public.

Types of Public Health Emergencies

  • Extreme weather conditions and natural disasters
  • Deliberate releases of biological and chemical agents or radiological threats
  • Epidemics and pandemics of influenza and other communicable diseases
