Emergency Preparedness

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

Wright County Public Health has the primary responsibility for assuring the overall health of the community in the event of any emergency. Since 2002, we have been enhancing our response plans through collaboration with community partners in the event of an infectious disease outbreak, natural disaster, bio-terrorism event, and a chemical or nuclear emergency.

  • For questions, call/text Wright County Public Health at 763-335-0280.
  • To report an emergency, call 911.
  • If you are ill, see your health care provider.
  • If you are a physician calling to report an infectious disease, please call the Minnesota Department of Health at 651-201-5414 or 1-877-676-5414.

How to Get Involved

Wright County Public Health is in need of volunteers to respond to potential Public Health emergencies. Depending on the emergency, volunteers will be needed to perform a variety of jobs both medical and non-medical.


To register as a volunteer, please visit the Minnesota Responds website and become a member of the Medical Reserve Corps.

Thank you for your consideration in joining us to help ensure the health and safety of our community and its members.


Wright County Citizen Alert System

How it works

When we issue a notification about a potential safety hazard or concern, you will receive a message on the voice or text communication methods that you have registered. If requested for the notification, you can confirm that you have received the message and you will not be contacted by any subsequent methods regarding that particular notification. If you do not confirm, the system will continue to attempt to reach you at all of the contact methods that you have provided.
