Public Health Emergency Management

The goal of the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services (LBDHHS) Public Health Emergency Management (PHEM) Program is to build the capacity of Health Department Staff and the community to respond to a public health emergency, including natural disasters, disease outbreaks, and bioterrorism events. With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Homeland Security, and the California Department of Public Health, PHEM provides training and education, develops plans, and coordinates exercises to enable the city to be better prepared in protecting the health and well-being of the Long Beach community.
