County of Los Angeles Public Health Emergency Preparedness Program

The Emergency Preparedness and Response Program (EPRP) assures the preparedness and response capabilities of the Department of Public Health (DPH), the County and partner agencies relative to the public health consequences of natural and man-made disasters and emergencies.

Our Mission

Our mission is to protect and improve the health of all Angelenos. This means providing you and your family with protection from the health threats such as food-borne illnesses, natural and man-made disasters, toxic exposures, and preventable injury. Public Health also works to prevent chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes and their risk factors: poor nutrition, inadequate physical activity, and tobacco use.

Our Web site is as diverse as the communities we serve. There, you will find information and links for nearly every health concern. Included are the most popular health topics, current health warnings and advisories, food facility grades, and our Beach Closures and Advisories.

Your Public Health department is committed to being a helpful resource to every individual in the county.

We aim to present the public with the information and resources necessary to pursuing and achieving healthy lives. We welcome your suggestions and comments.
