The Florida Department of Health in Liberty County
(DOH-Liberty) is involved in preparedness activities
such as staffing of General and Special Needs Shelters,
and participating in routine training and preparedness
exercises with other local agencies and community
partners. In addition, Health Department staff in tandem
with Department of Health planners, participate in purchasing
activities to secure supplies and equipment with Public Health
Preparedness funds, as part of an annual preparedness cycle.

During times of disaster, Health Department staff work with
local Emergency Management officials as well as all other local
government agencies and managers to provide the foundation of
support that is essential to successful response and recovery efforts.
Through the local Health Department "Emergency Operations Plan",
the continued functionality of Health Department facilities and
operations is assured through the Continuity of Operations and
Continuity of Government portions of the plan. Through this part of the plan,
the ability of our Health Department to remain functional, and provide
services to the community during any disaster is greatly enhanced.

The DOH-Liberty is committed to serving the needs of our community
during any man-made or natural disaster.
