Nobody knows when the next emergency will happen. The Division of Emergency Preparedness makes plans that we hope will never be used. Partnering with the Adams County Emergency Management Agency, fire departments, emergency medical services, and law enforcement, as well as state and federal agencies, the Division plans for events that could place the public health of Adams County at risk. Regular exercises are held with regional health districts to practice the plans and make sure we are ready to respond if needed. It's much like a fire extinguisher. We buy one and mount it on the wall—in the hopes that it will never be needed.
