Public Health Preparedness / Medical Reserve Corps
The Broome County Health Department, under the direction of both state and federal governments, is responsible for the planning and implementation of a response to any type of emergency affecting the public health including natural events (i.e., floods, hurricanes) and those caused by deliberate malicious acts (terrorism). In addition to the assistance of many other community agencies, area volunteers are also prepared to meet the challenge. The Medical Reserve Corps is a group of professional and non-professional community volunteers who want to donate their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to emergencies of any kind. They are also involved in Healthy Living Partnership's chronic disease initiatives throughout the year to support the many programs offered by the health department and attend meetings and practice drills to prepare for emergencies.
