Public Health Emergency Preparedness

Welcome to the Public Health Emergency Preparedness program of the Brazos County Health District.


In response to the deadly events of September 11, 2001, and the subsequent anthrax attacks, Congress established a new program to help health departments across the nations prepare for emergencies. Since then CDC’s Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) program has partnered with state, local, and territorial public health departments to prepare for, withstand, and recover from potentially devastating public health emergencies.

Every year since, the PHEP program has provided vital resources to ensure communities can effectively respond to infectious disease outbreaks, natural disasters, and chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear events.
