The Emergency Preparedness Program coordinates the planning and preparation for public health emergencies, including infectious disease outbreaks and bioterrorism incidents. This is a collaborative effort with:
  • The Public Health Department
  • Other county departments
  • Local healthcare facilities, agencies, & groups that serve the people of Tuolumne County


A Healthcare and Safety Coalition meets every other month, and as needed. Drills and exercises are held periodically to test and improve local response plans and skills.
