Public Health and Safety
In emergency situations such as snowstorms, power outages, and threats to public health and safety, RVNAhealth has been designated by the Ridgefield Health Department as a resource for health support in the community.
We also conduct and participate in disaster drills to prepare for the administration of mass inoculations or mass antibiotic distribution. Our staff participated in Community Emergency Response Training (CERT, a FEMA initiative) to learn to be able to respond in emergencies an disasters.
When the Ridgefield Health Department receives notification of a communicable disease case, RVNAhealth is an integral part of the investigation – providing essential support through interviews, testing, health education, counseling, and guidance
