Health Emergency Management

The Health Care Agency’s Health Emergency Management Program serves to coordinate medical health emergency management functions throughout Orange County. The County of Orange collaborates with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and other state and local partnering entities to ensure consistent disaster and preparedness planning locally, regionally and statewide. The EMS Health Emergency Management Section supports and participates in ongoing all-hazards preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery activities undertaken by the Orange County Operational Area (OA) and coordinates its planning efforts with other County departments, area cities and local special districts to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to and recover from health-related emergent disasters and events.
