Public health emergencies
In an emergency, call 911
The Hennepin County Public Health Emergency Preparedness department works continually to build the county’s capacity to respond to large-scale public health emergencies.
We work cooperatively with federal, state and local agencies, and with local hospitals and clinics to plan and coordinate emergency responses.
We communicate with county residents to ensure that everyone has effective and accurate information about potential health and safety risks.
We work to investigate and limit outbreaks of infectious disease, and to control its spread.
