The Ross County Health District is a recipient of the Public Health Emergency Preparedness Grant, which provides funds for agency emergency planning. Additionally, the grant makes it possible for the health district to partner and plan with other area agencies, such as the Ross County EMA, Adena Hospital, the Red Cross. The health district’s Emergency Response Coordinator not only writes and updates the agency Emergency Response Plan, but also works with other local public health agencies in the region to coordinate planning, response, and training.
Brochures on various health and emergency topics are available free of charge in the health district lobby (150 E. Second St., Chillicothe).
