Emergency Preparedness

Southwest Iowa Preparedness Partners (SWIPP) and Harrison County emergency preparedness partners (Harrison County Emergency Management, CHI Missouri Valley, Harrison County Fire & Rescue Association, and Harrison County Home & Public Health) work in partnership in planning and preparing for emergencies including natural disasters, bioterrorism, mass radiological exposure and infectious disease outbreaks like a flu epidemic.

Our primary role in emergency preparedness is to dispense medications. For example, in the case of a flu epidemic, such as H1N1, we would be in charge of distributing mass vaccinations to our county's residents.  We also play other roles to assist our partners when dispensing isn't a major need as when we assisted in the emergency response at the Little Sioux Scout Ranch tornado in 2008.

We are currently in the beginning steps of creating a volunteer list. Anyone interested in learning ways to get involved in the event of an emergency should contact us. 712-644-2220
