Radioactive materials give off a form of energy that travels in waves or particles. This energy is called radiation.

Heat illnesses can be deadly. On very hot days, sometimes people's body temperature control systems can't keep up.

The Vermont EMS office licenses nearly 180 ambulance and first responder agencies and 2,800 licensed patient care providers.
