Would you like to volunteer?

Friends of Public Health is a group in Platte County who volunteer their time helping PCPH with mass immunization drills and other PCPH emergency response activities. In an event, they will be present to help us through organizing, assisting, and conducting a mass immunization clinic. They are also trained in communications and safety management. If you would like to become a Friend of Public Health, call PCPH at the number listed in the contact page of this website.

To take a look at the activities our volunteers have participated in visit our Photos page.









 
 


September is National Preparedness Month!



Platte County Public Health works closely with the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security, local emergency planning and management agencies and the County Health Officer to build infrastructure and a response system within our county, which will be put into action in the event of a major emergency. With a cooperative agreement from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Platte County, along with other Wyoming counties, have each hired a Public Health Emergency Response Coordinator. One of the purposes of this position is public education and preparedness. Educating ourselves is one of the most important ways to protect our families. In this way, we can be prepared to respond in case there is an "event".
