Public health emergencies can be any disaster or crisis that can harm the health of people living in communities throughout Philadelphia. PDPH works every day to make sure Philadelphia is prepared for any kind of public health emergency. Our plans involve partners at the local, state, and federal levels.
The Bioterrorism and Public Health Preparedness Program maintains a repository of outreach materials and resources that providers and community organizations can reference and share with patients and the community members they serve. Topics include, but are not limited to, biological, chemical, and radiological agents, outbreaks and emerging and infectious diseases, extreme heat, severe storms, and COVID-19.
