Emergency Preparedness

The Caldwell County Health Department is continually working with the  Department of Health and Senior Services towards achieving public health and healthcare preparedness capabilities in the event of natural or man-made disasters.
We are also involved in the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC).  This committee is made up of members of our community that would be responsible for decision and actions in the event of an emergency.  Many of these members represent Caldwell County at SEMA and Region H Homeland Security meetings.  LEPC meets at 11:30am on the odd numbered months at Health Department.

Epidemiology

Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of health-related states or events (including disease), and the application of this study to the control of diseases and other health problems. Caldwell County works closely with the regional and state health departments to monitor communicable disease and health related issues in our county. 
The Missouri State Health Department defines communicable disease surveillance as follows:

Communicable disease surveillance is a multi-component system that monitors and analyzes data that includes – but is not limited to – demographic, geographic, and disease/condition-specific information. Accurate identification and timely reporting are integral parts of successful disease control, enabling public health agencies to:

•identify contacts who may be infected or other individuals at risk for infection,
•determine the incidence and prevalence of disease in a specific area of the state,
•assist physicians and hospitals in evaluating illnesses in their patients and communities, and
•assist the public in making better decisions regarding their health and lifestyle.

Successful communicable disease surveillance enhances control efforts; such as developing prevention/intervention strategies and policies, and responding to events involving potential exposure to communicable disease.

The goal of DHSS disease surveillance is to maintain an integrated statewide surveillance system for communicable, zoonotic, and environmentally induced health threats and to disseminate this information rapidly to customers.


For more information contact Tracy at: tracycarman@caldwellcountyhealthdept.com

To report a communicable disease, call the Health Department at (816) 586-2311.
