Public Health Response Teams (PHRT)
Iowa’s four public health response teams assist local partners across Iowa in responding to public health emergencies. Members of each team are volunteers from health care institutions, local public health and environmental health agencies, county medical examiner’s offices, private industry, Office of the State Medical Examiner, and IDPH staff. Iowa’s volunteer response partners have been an important part of the public health response system since the first team was established in 2003.
Information on specific teams can be found in the fact sheets located in the Documents section of this page.
