Emergency Preparedness

Mahoning County Emergency Preparedness Planning

The Mahoning County District Board of Health is working with our county emergency response partners to ensure citizens are protected if a bioterrorism attack, disease outbreak or natural disaster happens in our community. These events could have long term impact on the community’s health and safety and disrupt our daily routines.

During a public health emergency information will be posted on this website for response and recovery. If you would like to receive alerts regarding public health events please sign up by clicking here.
