What is CADH's Emergency Preparedness Program?

Emergency preparedness is the capacity of the public health professionals and other community partners to prevent, protect against, quickly respond to, and recover from public health emergencies.  Connecticut Association of Directors of Health (CADH) works to enhance the readiness of local health departments in Connecticut to prepare for and respond to public health emergencies through regional planning activities, assisting individual local health departments with planning processes, and providing guidance to local public officials on the National Association of County and City Health Official’s (NACCHO’s) Project Public Health Ready Initiative.
