West Central Public Health Initiative Mission
The Sherman County Health Department is a member of the West Central Public Health Initiative which is a partnership among Gove, Logan, Ness, Sheridan, Sherman and Trego counties. The focus of this initative is protecting the safety of all citizens in the region in the event of a communicable disease outbreak or bioterrorism incident
The initiative seeks to achieve a coordinated and professional emergency response among local elected leaders and public health, medical, law enforcement and other public safety personnel. By building cooperative partnerships across agency and county boundaries, and with informed citizens, our ultimate aim is to prevent or minimize harm to our communities when a threat to public health occurs.
The Sherman County Health Department is active in the Local Emergency Protection Committee. Information on the LEPC and minutes to the meeting may be found in the documents on this page.
