Welcome to the GNPH website! 
This site has been designed with two purposes in mind:
  1. As a place for people to get general information about our Public Health Region & about Public Health Emergency Preparedness.
  2. To provide planning partners with access to the current Regional Public Health Preparedness documents and planning templates. Access to these files is limited to municipal and hospital partners only.
Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or suggestions. Remember to bookmark our page for quick and easy reference! 

About Us

The Greater Nashua Public Health Region

The Greater Nashua Public Health Region (GNPHR) includes the City of Nashua and the towns of Amherst, Brookline, Hollis, Hudson, Litchfield, Lyndeborough, Mason, Merrimack, Milford, Mont Vernon, Pelham and Wilton. 

The Region has a population of approximately 200,000. 


The purpose of GNPH is to coordinate with key stakeholders to develop comprehensive community preparedness and response plans to be able to effectively mitigate and respond to the impacts of a large scale public health emergency.  The Regional Public Health Emergency Annex includes plans on how our region will respond to emergencies, including:

þ  Activation and operation of Points of Dispensing (PODs) - facilities set up to provide medication/vaccine to the region within 48 hours;

þ  Mass triage and Alternate Care Sites in the event that our medical providers are overwhelmed;

þ  Isolation and Quarantine measures to respond to communicable disease outbreaks;

þ  Regional PH emergency response coordination;

þ  Public Information and Warning protocols, procedures and templates; and

þ  Mass Fatality management.
