Emergency Preparedness

Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP)

The Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Program provides the day-to-day coordination of Department’s emergency prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery activities. It serves as a link to the New York State Department of Health, Greene County Department of Emergency Services, and other related organizations.

The Program also houses the Greene NY Medical Reserve Corps – professional citizen volunteers who assist communities during public health emergencies, such as natural disasters.

Information about the causes of natural and man-made disasters, what to do in an emergency, and where to seek help in an emergency are key to overcoming the potential hazards associated with emergencies. The PHEP Program is dedicated to providing helpful and informative resources in the areas of disease, natural disaster, terrorism and other emergency threats.
