Trainings and Exercises

The role of public health in the response to disasters is rapidly emerging, both in terms of operational and training issues.

Disasters have negative impacts on the community's health, and public health employees, healthcare professionals, first responders, and community volunteers must be well-prepared and trained to assure an effective and sustained public health response during an emergency in Sonoma County.

Working in collaboration with our health system partners, the Public Health Preparedness training program is conducting emergency preparedness workshops to address these training needs.
