Bioterrorism and PreparednessDisaster can strike at any time. Burlington County is susceptible to natural disasters such as hurricanes, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, floods/flash floods, winter storms, earthquakes, and forest fires. Man-made disasters can occur as well. One of our most important responsibilities is the ability to react immediately to any event that may threaten public health; more importantly, however, is our level of preparedness before that event occurs. One of the many functions of the Burlington County Health Department is to respond to public inquiry. The Health Department is often the first call made by citizens with health concerns and emergencies. The Local Information Network Communication System/Community Health Alert Information Network (LNCS/CHAIN) allows the Health Department to communicate with local public health agencies, emergency service providers, hospitals, physicians, veterinarians, pharmacies, police, etc., via e-mail and broadcast fax.
