The County and its municipalities are united in their desire to move forward in the development of an improved public health infrastructure for Passaic County. In August of 2001, the Emergency Health Planning Taskforce was created. This is a workgroup made up of hospital ER nurses and physicians, Infectious Control Practitioners, County and the Local Office of Emergency Management (OEM), firemen, and local health departments. The goal of this group is to develop a comprehensive emergency operations plan for each acute care facility and provide training for hospital personnel.
