The Center for Disaster Operations and Response (CDOR) works to protect the health of Iowans by preparing for public health emergencies from threats such as terrorism, to natural disasters like floods and tornadoes, to disease outbreaks like pandemic flu that may affect the health of all Iowans.

The center works with Iowa’s 99 local public health agencies, 118 hospitals, 14 community health centers, the Mesqwaki tribal nation, and other public and private entities by administering federal preparedness funds, providing guidance, tools, and resources to help prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters.

No one can predict the next disaster, however you can be assured that CDOR’s work with local partners makes protecting and promoting the health of Iowans our top priority.
