The Carroll County Coalition for Public Health (C3PH) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving public health in Carroll County.
The mission of C3PH is to improve the health safety and wellness of the citizens of Carroll County by facilitating community partnerships, developing strategic public health-related plans, coordinating the delivery of public health services and empowering the public to improve individual health.
Our no-cost flu clinics that we offer to the schools in the region, both public and private, are in full swing. The clinics are setup in the schools on a pre-arranged day and the vaccines, either shot or nasal mist, are administrated by licensed nurse and paramedics.
Carroll County Coalition for Public Health oversees the regional Medical Reserve Corps (MRC). The MRC is affiliatorps ed with the federal government’s Division of Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corp made up of volunteers who want to donate their time and expertise. The MRC volunteers prepare for and respond to both emergencies and planned-events and is open to both medical and non-medical volunteers. The MRC volunteers supplement existing emergency and public health resources, and promote initiatives to improve community health.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
CERT is a division of the Citizen Corps supported by FEMA, and the Carroll County Coalition for Public Health oversees the group in our region. The CERT concept was developed by the Los Angeles City Fire Department (LAFD) in 1985. The CERT Program educates community members about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact our area as well as train members in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT also supports emergency response agencies by providing additional support services during incidents and events.
