Keeping Kentucky Prepared 

The Department for Public Health (DPH) within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS)  is strongly committed to improving and preserving the health and safety of all Kentuckians. In the face of health risks and threats--including outbreaks of disease, natural disasters or acts of terrorism--citizens need to know where to go for answers.

Learn more about the planning and response work of DPH's Public Health Preparedness Branch and how you can increase your and your family's personal preparedness at its website. At the site, you will find guidelines and advice on how to prepare for disasters and health threats, as well as links to other valuable sources of information. You can also view presentations and video from the 2009 Governor's Pandemic Influenza Summit.

Since 2001, Kentucky’s DPH has received federal funds through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for public health emergency preparedness and planning. CHFS/DPH collaborates with local health departments, emergency management, hospitals and other organizations to increase the preparedness of the commonwealth.
