County prepares for disasters

September 15, 2012
The Marietta Times

September is Preparedness month and the Washington County Health Department continues to provide training and information for the public about emergencies related to natural and biological events. In late June, WCHD worked with several of our more rural areas in coordination with the Washington County Emergency Management Agency to provide generators and assistance at cooling centers. In prior years WCHD has assisted with the floods and provided immunizations and recommendations on clean-up and well testing for safe drinking water. During the H1N1 pandemic of 2009 and 2010, WCHD worked with the schools and the community to provide immunizations to the members of the community who were most at risk for this influenza and eventually provided immunizations for all members of the community who desired to protect themselves against this new flu strain.
