About Health Alert
Greene County Public Health Health Alert web site was developed to enhance the Greene County partners' ability to solicit volunteers to assist in emergency events, maintain a directory of individuals willing to be trained and keep active, including the above mentioned professionals, and to provide another means of notification of important information through the on-line registration and maintenance of personal vital data.
The Health Alert System will enhance the communication, notification, and coordination of information with the area medical providers, hospitals, and other health care facilities regarding surveillance, epidemiological investigations. This system is also designed to augment the disseminating of ODH and CDC Health Alerts to the local hospitals and medical provider communities.
