Emergency Preparedness

None of us knows when the next emergency will occur or what it will be. We can work together to prepare ourselves to respond quickly and effectively.

CHD plans for and responds to both man made and natural disasters within the towns of Colchester, East Haddam, East Hampton, Hebron, Marlborough and Portland.


Our plans address a general response to any emergency that might affect the health of our residents as well as plans for mass distribution of vaccines or medications like antibiotics in the event of a bioterrorism attack or a pandemic.


We work closely with local, state and federal partners to assure a comprehensive response to any possible emergency including acts of terrorism, natural disasters, disease outbreaks and more.
