Organizer

DuPage County Health Department Office of Risk and Emergency Management

Emergency Preparedness is of critical importance to the DuPage County Health Department (DCHD) as it encompasses many of our daily (standard) public health operations, and directly impacts our responsibilities and mission in dealing with incidents and disasters. All full-time and part-time employees are trained in emergency protocols. Employees have been assigned to various strike teams. These strike teams provide assistance to the agency during actual emergency operations. DCHD is an All-Hazard organization and is responsible for assisting DuPage County during emergency preparedness, prevention, protection, response, and recover operations.

The Health Department's planning initiatives are compliant with NIMS (National Incident Management System); the Homeland Security and Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP). The agency readily participates in the multi-year exercise and training program. The agency participated in the Technical Assistance Review (TAR) performed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2008 and 2009 and earned a score of 92% and 100% respectively. The Health Department was the only and the first county in the state of Illinois to receive a perfect score. In July 2011, the Health Department once again achieved a 100% score
