New NACCHO Checklist Can Make Your Local Health Department Ready for Water Emergencies

Feb 16, 2021 | Anu Varma

Due to climate change and aging infrastructure, water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) emergencies are increasing in severity and frequency and have the potential to cause adverse health effects. Local health departments (LHDs) are tasked with responding to these emergencies and limiting negative health impacts. NACCHO’s new preparedness checklist, developed by LHD experts, can be used as a quick guide to strengthen partnerships and processes to ensure community preparedness related to WASH. For questions, please reach out to WASH@naccho.org.

Download the checklist.
