Gary Health Department, Emergency Preparedness Division
Emergency Preparedness Division works collaboratively with their community partners in a public health disaster. These public health disasters are events that may cause a serious threat of illness or death in the Gary community.These events can be unexpected and may require immediate intervention and can overwhelm routine local capabilities/resources. These resources may be triggered by man-made incidents or by natural events. We conduct yearly exercises to assist with planning and preparation of these events. Volunteers will be contacted three (3) times a year.
