About Us


Our mission is to protect the health and safety of the citizens living in the jurisdictions of the member agencies by supporting and promoting the professional development of individuals and organizational members in public health emergency preparedness.

The Western Wisconsin Public Health Readiness Consortium (WWPHRC) consists of sixteen local public health agencies and two tribal health agencies. WWPHRC was established to develop core expertise and preparedness in response to bioterrorism, infectious disease outbreaks, and other public health threats. We do this through networking, coordinating, standardizing, and centralizing our resources and planning efforts among the eighteen local public health agency partners in Western Wisconsin.

A benefit of consortium membership is standardized, consistent, alignment of emergency response plans.  This allows members to respond, provide support, and rely on each other in any situation with minimal delay in response.  Plan updates/revisions are managed by the consortium director and communicated out to members for adopting/localizing.
