DIVISION OF PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICES

HUNTERDON COUNTY
DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

PUBLIC HEALTH PREPAREDNESS

A multidisciplinary team of specialists that create, develop, evaluate and implement action plans to help prevent, prepare for and respond to serious public health crises including emerging diseases, pandemic influenza, disease outbreaks, wide-scale natural events and terrorist attacks.

FIT TO BE TESTED

"Fit testing" is one of the many initiatives undertaken by the Public Health Preparedness division. This rigorous protocol established by the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) requires careful examination of personal protective equipment to ensure that responders to emergencies have the safest level of defense possible. Here, Patrolman J. Oliveira of the Franklin Township Police Department, reads while wearing a mask under a hood to test the accuracy of the fit that should prevent him from inhaling an odorous test mixture. Tom Kachnowski, coordinator of the Hunterdon County Medical Reserve Corps, administers the fit test.
