National Public Health Ready Recognition

Full Story

Jacksonville, FL - The Florida Department of Health in Duval County (DOH-Duval) has been recognized by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) for its ability to plan for, respond to, and recover from public health emergencies. DOH-Duval demonstrated these capabilities by meeting the comprehensive preparedness benchmarks required by Project Public Health Ready (PPHR), a unique partnership between NACCHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. DOH-Duval joins a cohort of more than 400 local health departments across the country that have been distinguished for excellence in preparedness through PPHR, either individually or as part of a region.

Effective July 21, 2015, the Environmental Health and Safety Division of the Florida Department of Health in Duval County has increased service fees and annual permit fees. Visit our Environmental Health page for more information.
