Public Health Response Program

The mission of the PHEP is to plan for, respond to, and mitigate the effects of a disaster through education, training, disease control & surveillance. The goal of the program is to improve and integrate local response capabilities with state and partner agencies that will protect the lives and property of Wyoming citizens and its visitors. My role is to ensure that staff is knowledgeable and prepared to respond to natural disasters, bio-terrorism, and other events.

Significant gains have been made for local emergency preparedness and disaster response, mitigation and recovery,  including small pox planning, white powder/suspicious substance response, Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) planning, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) stockpiles, OSHA compliant Respiratory Fit Testing program for Public Health Staff, Radios, and rapid notification capabilities with the Wyoming Alert Response Network and Wyo-link Talk Groups. Most agencies routinely exercise Mass Vaccination Clinics, Communication Drills, and training with PPE.

This was a Smoke Alarm Fire Campaign done where we installed 82 life-saving smoke alarms, tested 23 pre-existing smoke alarms, and helped a total of 68 people make sure that their homes were protected with smoke alarms and that they were educated on fire escape plans. This event was the first program that the Red Cross of Wyoming has partnered with the Eastern Shoshone since the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
