Information for You

From trained medical professionals who respond daily, to citizen volunteers who step up during natural disasters, Vermonters like you make all the difference in our communities' health, safety and preparedness.

Heat can cause serious illness. On very hot days, sometimes your body temperature can get dangerously high. This makes you at greater risk for serious heat illnesses.

The Vermont Statewide Incident Reporting Network (SIREN) is a comprehensive electronic prehospital patient care data collection, analysis and reporting system that has been in use since 2010.

Health care professionals protect the health of Vermonters through efforts to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters, infectious disease, terrorism and mass casualty emergencies. The Health Department supports these efforts in many ways.

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.

Many Vermonters are affected by falls at some point in their life. People who are 65 years and older are increasingly at risk of falling, and therefore potentially injury. As we age, we are more likely to be injured in a fall.
