The Environmental Public Health program is a specialized field of public health focused on ensuring the health and safety of communities through inspection, education, and intervention via recommendations
to Chief and Council.
The goal is to assist people who provide services to the community and give them the knowledge and power to control health factors in their local environment. This is done in order to prevent illness, promote health, and prolong life on a population level.
Some responsibilities under this program include: the delivery of safe drinking water; solid waste and wastewater management; healthy housing; food safety; facilities such as pools, daycares, and salons; communicable disease control; and emergency preparedness.
