3/1/2019 - Fairfield Health Department Asking Residents to Participate in a March 14th Community Conversation on Health Needs
The Fairfield Health Department is conducting its fourth Community Health Needs Assessment and are asking residents to help by providing their feedback.
Fairfield residents are asked to attend a community conversation on Thursday, March 14th from 6pm – 7:30pm at Vazzy’s 19th hole (2390 Easton Turnpike, Fairfield) to discuss the health needs and concerns in Fairfield. Due to a snowstorm in February, this community conversation was rescheduled to March 14th.
Light appetizers and refreshments will be provided. Additionally, Stop & Shop gift cards will be given out to the first 20 people who RSVP. Residents can RSVP to Health Equity Solutions by calling (860) 461-7637.
“This is a great way for residents to vocalize the health issues here in Fairfield,” said Sands Cleary, Director of Health for the Fairfield Health Department. “Results from this conversation, along with telephone surveys conducted in the summer and fall of 2018, will give insight to the needs of the Fairfield community and from there we will develop a plan to address those needs,” Cleary explained.
Fairfield is participating in this assessment as a member of the Primary Care Action Group (PCAG) which is a collaboration of area hospitals, community health centers, local health departments, and other organizations in the towns and cities of Bridgeport, Easton, Fairfield, Monroe, Stratford, and Trumbull. The primary focus of PCAG is to enhance the health of the residents of these communities.

A few tips for transporting your hazardous waste to the collection site:
- Don't mix hazardous wastes. Keep waste in their original containers if possible.
- Keep hazardous waste away from children and animals.
- Don't smoke in the vehicle.
- For safety reasons, there will be no walk-in drop-offs on Collection Day.
Chemicals from around the home, workshop or garden shed may contain substances which are difficult to dispose of safely. Your effort will help protect our Town's environment and our region's water supply.
