  • Establishing baseline response expectations and reporting mechanisms to assure response readiness.

  • Measuring and evaluating response and recovery effectiveness.

  • Assuring capacity to manage communication before, during, and after a health emergency.

  • Planning, implementing, and managing programs that include training and exercises to enhance the efforts of BCHD staff to respond in times of need.

  • Developing and managing systems to support the effective use of BCHD staff and health volunteers during emergencies.
