Summer Safety Summer Fun Safety

Summer’s dangers are often overlooked as people try to relax.

National Preparedness Month September is National Preparedness Month.

Get ready to make your emergency action plan. Make a plan with your neighbors, your family and for your pets. Plan on how to communicate during disasters that can impact you.


Welcome To Allen County Public Health Website!


Ah, summertime! It can be the best of times and the worst of times weather-wise.  Unexpected weather and threatening conditions can create physical hazards and emotional stress. Have you signed up for local alerts and warnings, or downloaded apps so you can receive emergency alerts? For any weather emergency, the best thing you can do is be prepared by having a family plan.  Some disasters strike without any warning, and family members may not all be in the same place. How will you get in touch with each other? Where will you meet? It’s important to make a plan now so that you will know what to do, how to find each other, and how to communicate in an emergency. Learn how to weather the storms by finding tips to be safe and stay healthy on our Fact Sheets Page under the Emergency Preparedness tab.


In good health,

Kathy Luhn, Allen County Health Commissioner
