Use Caution to Safely Clean up Debris

Full Story
Tallahassee, Fla.— Residents and others working to clean up debris left by Hurricane Michael could be at risk of sustaining injuries, and the Florida Department of Health is urging residents to practice caution when cleaning in and around their homes.

To better understand the problems facing our community, a health assessment is completed every three years. Led by the Live Well Partnership for a Healthy Community with support from the Florida Department of Health in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties, the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) includes input from residents, an analysis of data on chronic disease and the leading causes of death in our community, and discussions with community leaders to identify the most pressing health issues. More information about our current CHNA, and where we are in the assessment process, can be found on the LiveWellNWFL.org website.
