Emergency Preparedness

Goodhue County Health and Human Services works with many partners in the county and in the Southeast Region of Minnesota to make sure we have the ability to respond to emergency incidents. These incidents could be floods, tornadoes, radiological releases from the Prairie Island Nuclear Plant, and disease outbreaks, to name a few.

Make sure you sign up for Code Red which is a communication system used in emergencies. Goodhue County uses it  to notify you of “something coming your way.”
