Local Preparedness


The Cambridge Public Health Department and other first responders lead the city’s disaster preparedness efforts.

As a member of the Cambridge Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), the department works closely with the city’s police, fire, and public works departments; local hospitals and businesses; and others to prepare for a range of potential disasters that could affect Cambridge and surrounding communities.

The department’s emergency preparedness staff have developed a plan for dispensing vaccines and medicines during a major emergency, organize trainings and “real world” exercises for the city’s first responders, and meet with business and community groups to discuss how they can prepare for disasters.
