What Residents Can Do To Help In Times of Public Health Emergency
In times of emergency, Atlantic County needs a core team of residents that is ready and able to assist others in our community!
One of the key goals of the Atlantic County Division of Public Health is to respond to disasters as well as to prevent and control the spread of disease.
In the event of a bioterrorism attack or major outbreak of a naturally occurring illness in Atlantic County, we will need the help of many citizens to protect the health of our residents. We will need both medical and non-medical volunteers.
