The Public Health Preparedness program at Public Health-Idaho North Central District (PHINCD) is charged with planning for, responding to, and recovering from, public health emergencies in Clearwater, Latah, Lewis, Idaho, and Nez Perce counties. This includes helping our communities and families be prepared for 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.
PH-INCD can be a valuable resource to get you started on making you, your family and all of North Central Idaho more prepared for a public health disaster. Contact any of our staff for more information.
