Project ICE (In Case of Emergency):

Being prepared is critical for adequate safety. An emergency can occur at any time. These often unexpected tragedies can leave us overwhelmed and stressed about things to come. Cherokee County Public Health wants to provide you with the materials that ensure you are prepared for these unpredictable emergencies.

Project ICE has been designed to allow Cherokee County Public Health and Cherokee County first responders to quickly identify our county’s most vulnerable population during a natural disaster or medical emergency. Project ICE is targeted to assist those 65 years or old or individuals living with chronic illnesses. Click to view the Project ICE Brochure.
