Vision and Mission
Our Vision: Los Angeles County residents are protected from the public health consequences of both natural and intentional emergencies.

Our Mission: To prevent and mitigate the public health consequences of natural or intentional emergencies for Los Angeles County residents through threat assessment, planning, improved operational readiness, and timely response.

Building a Network of Community Volunteer Units

The purpose of the PHEV Network is to increase the participation with established community volunteer units that are willing to assist the LA County Department of Public Health in responding to public health emergencies by creating a system to engage, train, and deploy these groups.

The PHEV Network values:

  • Efficient coordination
  • Nurturing collaboration
  • Effective communications
  • Respect for the autonomy of each unit.
Is your community volunteer unit:
  • Composed of members over the age of 18?
  • Interested in and willing to assist during public health emergencies?
  • Led by or have a designated primary point of contact or unit coordinator?
If you answered YES! to all of these questions, then JOIN TODAY!
