Safe Communities

Safe Communities is a program under the Ohio Dept. of Public Safety. The goal is to work with local groups and law enforcement to reduce traffic fatalities and focus on four initiatives that serve to advance projects in specific traffic safety areas. Initiatives include reviewing traffic fatalities, prevention and awareness on impaired driving, motorcycle safety and seatbelt use.

Sandusky County Public Health can be contacted 24 hours a day in the event of an after-hours public health emergency. 

After hours call the Sandusky County Sheriff’s Dispatch at 419-334-6433 and ask to speak to a Public Health Official.

Public health emergencies could include:

An immediate environmental health hazard (e.g. drinking water contamination)

An infectious disease of immediate public health concern

(a Class A reportable disease, which requires disease reporters to contact the health department immediately by phone)
