Emergency Prep

The Modoc County Health Department's Emergency Preparedness Program focuses on the identification of potential risks and measures to minimize risks, identifying resources, developing response plans, and supplying education for communities, organizations, and individuals. The Modoc County Public Health Department is also responsible for implementing the Modoc County Hospital Preparedness Program and Pandemic Flu grants through state-allocated funds.


The Modoc County Public Health Department is excited to announce the implementation of the Support and Aid for Everyone Program (SAFE) within Modoc County. The program is a voluntary participation program that focuses on the at-risk population within our community. If you are interested in signing up for the SAFE program or have any questions, please contact 233-6311.

Don't Be Scared, Be Prepared
One of the most important steps in preparing for a disaster is to ensure that you are prepared. Make sure your family has made adequate preparations for a disaster event in your community. This includes creating a family disaster kit that will last 72 hours, making an emergency plan, and staying informed.
