The Public Health division works with local and regional agencies to plan and prepare for emergencies that can affect the health of our community.
As a member of the Lowell Office of Emergency Preparedness, we plan and prepare for emergency response to pandemic or bioterrorism event that would require rapid dispensing of medical counter-measures (mass prophylaxis) to the entire population.
Upper Merrimack Valley Public Health Coalition
We also participate in Upper Merrimack Valley Public Health Coalition for Emergency Preparedness, a regional coalition for emergency preparedness and mutual aid. The coalition includes the following towns.
Through the coalition we develop plans and preparedness to meet the health and sheltering of our communities in emergency situations, such as fire or flood.

Do you have a family emergency plan? Every family should have its own emergency plan. Learn more on our Family Emergency Plan page.
