Public Health Preparedness

Public health in Michigan is governed by the Public Health Code, PA 368 of 1978, which charges the state health department with the responsibility and authority to establish a system of local public health services in order to protect the health of the public.


District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) was established to serve as the Local Health Department (LHD) for the 10-county jurisdiction of Crawford, Kalkaska, Lake, Manistee, Mason, Mecosta, Missaukee, Newaygo, Oceana, and Wexford Counties.


Local governing entities are ultimately responsible for local public health administration in response to state and local laws, rules, and regulations. They provide funds; approve fees, budgets, and plans; and appoint health officers and a board of health.
