Emergency Planning & Response 

The Florida Department of Health in Escambia County (DOH-Escambia) is actively planning for an effective and efficient response to health emergencies occurring in our community. The Epidemiology staff is trained to respond to man-made emergencies (For example: Bioterrorism) and naturally occurring health threats (For example: Pandemic Influenza and Hurricane Response). Epidemiologists are also responsible for monitoring and evaluating our community’s health status and needs during these events to assist in decision making regarding appropriate actions and interventions; as well as making recommendations for prevention and control/containment.

Education & Community Outreach 

The Epidemiology program is available to our community partners and health care professionals for guidance regarding disease reporting regulations and health education. If you are interested in receiving education about disease reporting and/or disease prevention and control please call for 850-595-6683 for more information.
