Central Valley Health District works with the North Dakota Department of Health, public safety agencies, and other community groups to plan and prepare for disasters or emergency situations. This is in conjunction with local all hazards emergency planning, preparedness, and response.
Central Valley Health District is part of an eight-county region established by the State of North Dakota for emergency preparedness and response planning. Counties included in our region are: Barnes, Dickey, Foster, LaMoure, Logan, McIntosh, Stutsman, and Wells
An emergency response coordinator, environmental health practitioner, and a public information officer serve the eight counties within the Southeast Central Region. Their work is funded in part by federal grants and is focused on public health emergencies. This is done through public education and planning which involves partnerships for enhanced regional response plans and capabilities.
