The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (WVDHHR) is the state agency charged with overseeing the health response to disasters occurring within the borders of West Virginia. Response is undertaken collaboratively with many partners—local health departments, hospitals and other health care facilities, physicians and other health care providers, EMS agencies, Emergency Management agencies, WV Poison Center, etc .

Within WVDHHR, the WV Bureau for Public Health, The Center for Threat Preparedness facilitates advance planning and preparation for health disasters. The Center works to coordinate, support and oversee the effort; much of the work itself is undertaken by hundreds of individuals, organizations, and agencies located throughout the state. The Center began in 2002 and is supported primarily through federal funding.
