Public Health & Business Partners: Collaborating for a Prepared Community

Business Partnerships

Yolo County and the Sacramento Region welcome you to our Public Health Business Partners Page! Currently the Yolo County Health Department and the Sacramento County Department of Health and Human Services are working with businesses locally and nationally to prepare for and respond to Public Health Emergencies. This includes anything from a large scale communicable disease outbreak to a biological agent release.

When a business chooses to partner with Yolo County or Sacramento County Public Health they get the opportunity to work one on one with public health professionals and are given access to online training programs to educate their employees in both personal and professional emergency preparedness. Our business partners also get access to other public health programs that promote healthy choices and lifestyles. We see our partnerships with business as another way for companies both large and small to protect their most important assets - their employees.

These on-line courses are provided "free" by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for government "disaster service responders", the general public, and partner agencies who may take an active role in any emergency. These classes review the organization and communication procedures needed to respond effectively in any disaster. All on-line classes are free-of-charge and self-paced. Upon completion, FEMA will e-mail a certificate of completion.
