Florida Department of Health in St. Johns County Protects Communities from Emergencies and Disasters through National "Public Health Ready" Recognition Program

Full Story

The Florida Department of Health (DOH) in St. Johns County has again been recognized by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) for its ability to plan for, respond to, and recover from public health emergencies. DOH-St. Johns County demonstrated these capabilities by meeting the comprehensive preparedness benchmarks required by Project Public Health Ready (PPHR), a unique partnership between NACCHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. DOH-St. Johns County joins a cohort of nearly 450 local health departments across the country that have been distinguished for excellence in preparedness through PPHR, either individually or as part of a region.
