The Broome County Health Department is committed to informing, educating, and empowering people about health issues. The Health Department staff is available to provide educational materials and presentations to the public through schools, houses of worship, service organizations and work sites. These programs are provided to community groups at no charge. Please call to schedule at least two months in advance of the event.
Public Health Preparedness / Medical Reserve Corps
The Broome County Health Department, under the direction of both state and federal governments, is responsible for the planning and implementation of a response to any type of emergency affecting the public health including natural events (i.e., floods, hurricanes) and those caused by deliberate malicious acts (terrorism). In addition to the assistance of many other community agencies, area volunteers are also prepared to meet the challenge. The Medical Reserve Corps is a group of professional and non-professional community volunteers who want to donate their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to emergencies of any kind. They are also involved in Healthy Living Partnership's chronic disease initiatives throughout the year to support the many programs offered by the health department and attend meetings and practice drills to prepare for emergencies.
