Healthy Neighborhoods coming to Plattsburgh

PLATTSBURGH The Healthy Neighborhoods Program of the Clinton County Health Department will be conducting health and safety surveys throughout the Town of Pittsburgh during the months of January, February and March. The brief in-home surveys are designed to identify health and safety concerns. Home safety products such as fire extinguishers, first aid kits, water bottles, flashlights, child safety products, allergen barrier mattress and pillow covers, carbon monoxide and smoke detectors may be provided by the Healthy Neighborhoods Program to program-eligible families. During the home visit, education is provided regarding fire and burn safety, carbon monoxide poisoning prevention, lead poisoning prevention, asthma, injury prevention and many other health and safety topics. Information and referrals are also provided regarding available community resources for which a family may be eligible. Participation in the Healthy Neighborhoods Program is free for all Clinton County residents.
