Health Education services are provided to the community on public health preparedness topics including emergency preparedness (sheltering in place and emergency evacuation), bioterrorism, communicable diseases, and disease prevention.
Health education is provided through presentations to worksites, community groups and agencies, and at community health fairs. A bilingual (English & Spanish) health education display at the Rt. 12 Hunterdon County library highlights a different public health topic each month.
Preparedness staff also develop just in time training for use during division preparedness drills and exercises.
