Local Preparedness

Although many people do not believe Adair County would be a target for a bioterrorist attack, several key agencies are partnering to prepare for a potential attack. These key agencies include:

  • Public Health Department
  • Office of Emergency Management
  • Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)
  • Law Enforcement
  • Fire Protection
  • Emergency Medical Services (EMS)

School Districts

Active surveillance will alert Health Department officials to a potential outbreak or attack. Emergency plans advise key partners on how to respond. Medication dispensing sites* have been designated and can be opened if there is a need to dispense medication to county residents.
