EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS
The Emergency Preparedness and Response Section of the North Dakota Department of Health is dedicated to creating and promoting a state of readiness and prompt response to protect the health of North Dakotans during catastrophic events, large scale disasters and emergencies. The section coordinates education, assessment, planning, response and support services involving public health providers, private medical providers, public safety agencies and government officials.
This program centers on preparedness and training for all public health-related emergencies, such as pandemic illness, terrorism, and natural disasters in collaboration with other local, regional, and state emergency response agencies.
The Department of Homeland Security's mission is to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 240,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. 
Launched in February 2003, Ready is a national public service advertising (PSA) campaign designed to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies including natural and man-made disasters. The goal of the campaign is to get the public involved and ultimately to increase the level of basic preparedness across the nation.
