Vermont works diligently to prevent radiological incidents and to be prepared for radiological and nuclear emergencies.

We work with several state health partners to improve asthma self-management among Vermonters. Good self-management means higher quality of life, better sleep, and fewer missed school and/or workdays.

In an overdose, opioids can slow breathing to the point of death. To save lives, the Health Department gives out a medication called naloxone (brand name Narcan®) that can reverse an overdose.
