Health Department

When most think of health they likely think of personal health. It’s a health department’s job to look at health through a wider lens. Good public health policies and enforcement have had a positive impact on improving the public’s health. The Redding Health Department, Redding’s public health agency, conducts inspections of restaurants, public pools, daycare centers, septic systems along with investigations of reported public health issues. The department also advises the public on radon, tick-borne diseases, West Nile Virus, vermin control, rabies, drinking water quality, swim water quality, septic issues, and emerging diseases.
