The Public Health Preparedness program continues to build its capacity to respond to public health emergencies by enhancing the agency response as well as its ability to work with partner agencies and elected officials. Our partners include Columbia County Emergency Management, county and local law enforcement agencies, Columbia River Fire and Rescue, The Columbia County Board of Commissioners, local city governments, local school districts, South Columbia County Chamber of Commerce and Cities Readiness Initiative as well as a variety of local civic organizations and private businesses.

In order to assist the citizens of Columbia County to become better prepared for all types of disasters, Public Health works in conjunction with community and regional volunteer agencies. The work of our county volunteers is invaluable and enhances our ability to respond to disasters.
