Paul Card, Health Communications Program Coordinator


The CDC Preparedness Cooperative Agreement requires that health departments have communications redundancy so that should one communications system fail to function, there are other technologies that can be implemented to maintain communications among emergency responders.  Technologies the Public Health Emergency Preparedness Program have implemented include:


Two-Way Radio (UHF/VHF/800mhz)

Satellite Telephone

Amateur (HAM) Radio (ARES/RACES through coordination with Emergency Management)

Dynamic Message Signs (through coordination with Wyoming Department of Transportation)

Broadcast Fax

Video Conferencing

Text messages/Texting/SMS

Web-based Information Sharing Portal

Web-based Alerting and Notification


  Immediately report the occurrence of potential public health hazards to the Wyoming Department of Health 24/7 Emergency Notification line:
