Information for You

Asthma treatment for a child or an adult will depend on the severity of their disease. The goal of treatment is to control the disease and prevent asthma attacks. An individualized asthma action plan is critical. 

Here is information about heart disease, risk factors, blood pressure, prevention, monitoring and treatment, plus tools and resources for individuals and families.

Being at a healthy weight can help lower your chances of developing chronic diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.

Act now to prepare for any emergency – flooding, an ice storm, power outage, flu pandemic or disease outbreak. You may need to evacuate or stay where you are to keep safe.

We are looking for people to join our advisory committee to represent Vermont families, particularly families that use our EMS system.

Every EMSC program works toward nine performance measures determined by the Health Resources and Services Administration Maternal and Child Health program. This allows the EMSC programs to develop special goals, activities, and projects that prioritize improving emergency care for children within each state.
