Fishers Health Department
This (Link) will describe why Fishers started its health department. Occasionally, I will get the following questions, so I thought I would address them in this blog. What is the role of a Health Department? The primary role of the local health departments include retail food inspections, vital records, public health nursing, housing, vector control, and nuisance issues. Their authority to address these public health and safety issues frequently exceeds that of the State Department of Health. The local health department is also an excellent technical information and assistance source.
