Current Threats

Many of the things we do everyday help to prevent public health crises. Without restaurant inspections, immunizations or sewage and plumbing rules, many nearly “extinct” diseases would be much more prevalent in our community.Other public health strategies such as good hygiene, eating well and exercising help protect the overall health of our community and may serve as essential tools in battling large scale disease outbreaks such as pandemic influenza.

However, we live in an unpredictable world, and as we learned from the terrorist attacks in 2001, the hurricanes in 2005, the 2008 windstorm caused by Hurricane Ike, and H1N1 in 2009-10, public health emergencies can arise at any time. When they do, Hamilton County Public Health is ready to respond.
