Ready for emergencies

If you live in one of the 27 communities surrounding Boston, your regional public health agency has been singled out for its readiness to face bioterrorism events, new epidemics, natural disasters and other public health emergencies. Local health departments in Boston, Needham and Wellesley were also honored.

Massachusetts Emergency Preparedness Region 4B - Cambridge and the Boston Public Health Commission, the Needham Health Department and the Wellesley Health Department were recognized by the National Association of County and City Health Officials.
