Emergency Preparedness

Auglaize County Health Department's Emergency Response division is responsible for ensuring Auglaize County maintains a strong public health infrastructure during an emergency through regular training, drills, and exercises. These exercises help to better prepare public health leaders on how to respond during an emergency. Additionally, Auglaize County Health Department maintains several Emergency Response Plans in the event of a local, state, or federal emergency.
