Welcome to the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department
Division of Emergency Preparedness

The Division of Emergency Preparedness is responsible for making sure your community has a plan of action for emergency situations that could occur, sometimes with little or no warning, including natural disasters, disease outbreaks, or terrorist attacks.

                            What can I do to be prepared?                            
As Ben Franklin once said, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Making sure that your family is prepared for many different types of emergency situations will take a little time and effort, but it could save the lives of you and your family members. To make sure your family is ready for an emergency, check out our "Tips for Making Sure Your Family is Prepared."
