Wisconsin's Public Health Emergency Preparedness Program focuses on preparing for, and responding to, events that pose a substantial risk to the health of the state's residents. Our purpose is to provide information, resources, and expertise to our partners to ready Wisconsin for health threats, emergencies, and disasters.
The Sawyer County Medical Reserve Corps was awarded Outstanding New MRC Unit Award. Sawyer County MRC received funding for a National Association of City and County Officials (NACCHO) Challenge Grant, Project CPR: Compassion, Protect and Rescue. Project CPR has trained over 30 persons to educate their communities on prevention of human trafficking and care of survivors of human trafficking. Training included key elements of identification, rescue, recovery, and resources available for potential victims of human trafficking in order to raise situational awareness and reduce the risk of trafficking in vulnerable populations.
