Public health emergencies have occurred in the past and can occur again. While creating your Emergency Supply Kit, it is important to include sanitary items to further protect yourself and your loved ones. It is through a focus on public education, tracking health problems and hazards within the community and the development and enforcement of policies, laws and regulations that the City of Worcester and the Division of Public Health can continue to promote the well-being of the community. To ensure the safety and health of the populace, the Division strives to prevent the outbreak of disease and injury while promoting social, economic and environmental factors fundamental to health. For more information please visit the Center for Disease Control and the City of Worcester Division of Public Health.
