Public Health - Emergency Preparedness

 

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS 
FCPH continues to develop and update many emergency plans to assist the community in responding to disasters. A good example is the mass vaccination point of dispensing held at the Fulton Montgomery Community College during the COVID-19 pandemic. This plan was developed and practiced for over 10 years by public health staff.
