To help ensure that homes in our community are safe, the St. Albans Local Health Office connects the families we serve to a variety of resources.
Lead Prevention and Screening
All 1 and 2-year-olds should be screened for lead exposure through their primary health care provider. Learn more about healthy homes and lead hazards. For 1 and 2-year-olds enrolled in WIC, we offer lead testing right in the St. Albans Local Health Office.
Radon Test Kit
Did you know one in eight Vermont homes has unsafe levels of radon gas? You can’t see it, smell it, or taste it, but there are things you can do to protect yourself and your family. Order a free home radon testing kit from the Department of Health and watch a video about radon in homes.
Drinking Water Test Kit
Request drinking water testing kits from the Vermont Department of Health Laboratory by calling 800-660-9997 or 802-338-4736.
Town Health Officers
Town Health Officers are responsible for investigating possible public health hazards and risks. Examples of Town Health Officer responses include complaints of failing sewage systems that may affect the public’s health, rental housing complaints, complaints of animal cruelty and animal bites, closing swimming areas that may be a public threat, and local compliance with Vermont’s Lead Law.
