Public Health Preparedness Materials

Over the last year, the Kentucky Department for Public Health has produced several public health preparedness materials, including a brochure, community information pocket card and public health video. The goal of these materials is to increase awareness of and educate Kentuckians about the work of public health at the state and local level to increase community and state-level preparedness to respond to disasters, as well as to share information on how individual Kentuckians can be more prepared or take advantage of opportunities to volunteer.

The materials are downloadable from our Web site. If you require additional copies, please contact Barbara Fox, Public Information Officer, Division of Communications, Cabinet for Health and Family Services at (502) 564-6786 Ext. 4411 or email at
