Hood River County Health Department develops plans and procedures to better prepare our community to respond, mitigate, and recover from all public health emergencies. This is a collaborative effort which requires active participation among many stakeholders in Hood River County and the surrounding region. Our planning embraces an ‘All Hazards’ approach to disaster/incident preparedness. This means that our plans are designed to be functional under a variety of situations.
