Public Health and Emergencies

In a life threatening or time critical emergency please contact 000

 Council has an important role to play in preventing and responding to public health related emergencies.  Public health emergencies include human epidemics (such as flu outbreaks) and biological outbreaks, contaminated food and water incidents and other emergencies and disruptions that have the potential to impact on community welfare and wellbeing.  Council environmental health officers ensure that businesses and community groups when dealing with food make sure that this is done safely and ensure that community safety is considered during emergencies, disasters and disruptions.
