Threat Preparedness

Monongalia County Health Department’s Threat Preparedness program provides public health preparedness and response capabilities to protect the community from natural and man-made threats. We collaborate closely with various local, state and federal partners to ensure we are able to provide comprehensive preparedness and response services to our community. Threat Preparedness staff undergo numerous types of training to become public health practitioners with a wide variety of skills and abilities. We train for all kinds of situations and can deploy immediately when needed or requested.

A key component of preparedness is promotion of various training and skills that can help prepare and empower the community. Our program offers public and private training in Stop the Bleed, CPR, naloxone administration, radiation response and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).

The Threat Preparedness program also houses the West Virginia Northern Radiation Response Team. We have a team of radiation specialists that can respond to incidents to assess and mitigate the radiation hazard as well as provide subject matter expertise and recommendations to responders as well as the public.
