~Gulf County Health Department honored as “Public Health Ready”~

Published: Thursday, January 24, 2013 at 09:34 AM.

The Gulf County Health Department has taken part in several such exercises – a mock traffic accident involving a school bus; emergency planning for a pandemic flu outbreak – and PPHR recognition confirms that the Gulf County Health Department has a thorough and coordinated emergency response plan in place, that agency staff members are trained, and that the agency exercises the plan and uses it during public health emergencies.

The mission of the Gulf County Health Department is to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county, and community efforts.
