Public Health Preparedness

Public Health Preparedness


The Office of Public Health Preparedness at Central District Health (CDH) is charged with planning for, responding to, and recovering from, public health emergencies in Ada, Boise, Elmore and Valley counties. This charge includes helping our communities and families be prepared for just such an event. As an individual, there are many things you can do to help your family and community be prepared.

  • Protect yourself against everyday health hazards such as excessive summer heat, freezing winter temperatures, influenza and West Nile virus.
  • Learn more about the threats currently facing your community and our nation.
  • You can take simple disaster planning steps now that can help prevent disease and injury during an emergency.
  • Be informed of how your community is preparing and find ways to help.

CDH can be a valuable resource to get you started on making you, your family and the entire Treasure Valley more prepared for a public health disaster. Contact any of our staff for more information or click on "Public Health Preparedness on the side menu.
