Emergency Preparedness for Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Floods and Fires

With the recent hurricanes that are affecting the eastern United States, and the 1-year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey affecting southeastern Texas, all of our East Texas residents should remain vigilant and stay prepared for an emergency situation.

On Thursday,  September 27th, and on Saturday, September 29th, there will be two informative webinars that will give MANY preparedness tips surrounding specific disabilities, such as blind/low vision, deaf/hard of hearing, cognitive disabilities, etc. Both 1-hour webinars will start at 10:00 a.m.

Register for these webinars by clicking here.

When planning ahead for a potential disaster, it is important for families to take into consideration the specific needs of ALL members of your family.  

You should also create a Family Emergency Plan and make sure you have all of the supplies and essential items included on the Emergency Supply List.

If your community needs assistance with being prepared before an emergency occurs, then contact our Public Health Emergency Preparedness Department by sending us a message on our Facebook page or by sending an email to ContactUs@netphd.org.

What’s Happening In The Community

"We have very, very low HPV vaccine completion rates,” says Dr. Li-Yu Mitchell, a member of the NET Health Board of Directors. “We want to catch the students who may have missed getting these shots . . . [because] teenagers and people in their twenties make up the majority of the 14 million new HPV infections each year."

Click the video to learn about the recent vaccine clinic at the UT Tyler College of Pharmacy that was provided our NET Health Immunizations Department, the UT Tyler School of Nursing & the Texas Medical Association.

Click her to read about the free HPV vaccine clinic that was recently held at Tyler Junior College.

Teens and young adults who were unable to visit either of these opportunities can come to our NET Health Immunizations Clinic at 815 North Broadway in Tyler and learn how to receive the HPV vaccine.

Be Wise . . . Immunize.
