Things to Do
The Cheyenne-Laramie County Health Department Emergency Preparedness and Response Program lead efforts in preventing, responding to, and recovering from emergencies that impact public health. These emergencies can be natural (wildfires, blizzards, flooding, or a disease outbreak such as pandemic influenza, West Nile virus, or meningococcal disease) or manmade (acts of terrorism or hazardous materials spill).
The Health Department's staff increases preparedness within the department and the community by planning for public health emergencies, providing training and exercises, and educating the public. The Program also collaborates with the County's Emergency Management Unit, and other local, state, federal, and non-profit agencies to prepare and respond to a wide range of emergency events in Cheyenne and Laramie County.
