Planning Process and Updates Example


These plan excerpts were submitted to Project Public Health Ready (PPHR) by the Wilkes-Barre City Health Department to describe how public health preparedness is approached in the jurisdiction.  The excerpts describe the planning process and planning team composition, as well as how the plans are updated.  One notable practice included here is a list of information that is to be updated annually with hyperlinks to the location of those items.

This evidence can be used as an example by agencies applying for PPHR recognition or by other agencies seeking to improve their levels of preparedness.
