Health Care Professionals Protect the Health of Vermonters.

They help mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters, infectious disease, terrorism and mass casualty emergencies.

The Health Department supports health care professionals by:

  • maintaining the Vermont Health Alert Network,

  • serving as the grantee for the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and the U.S. Health & Human Services health preparedness grants, and

  • offering technical support for preparedness such as planning, exercises and training so Vermont can be ready for emergencies.
