Project Public Health Ready Recognition

Three Pennsylvania municipalities and one county were recognized at the Statewide Advisory Committee for Preparedness meeting on March 10. The Allentown Health Bureau, Bethlehem Health Bureau, Chester County Health Department and Philadelphia Public Health Department were each recognized for receiving their Project Public Health Ready Recognition.  This certification is given by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO). Project Public Health Ready recognition confirms that health agencies have the capacity and capability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from public health emergencies through a coordinated emergency response plan, and that staff have the training to protect the health of the community during an emergency.
