Public Health Preparedness & Response


For the purpose of public health preparedness & response, North Carolina's 100 counties are grouped into four geographic regions: Central, Western, Eastern and CRI (Cities Readiness Initiative). Each region has a PHP&R field office staffed with planning consultants, training and exercise facilitators, industrial hygienists, pharmacists, and program support specialists, all employed by the state, who work with the county public health officials.
