Local health departments learn how to deal with acts of terrorism


Representatives from local health departments in Fairfield, Stratford and Trumbull met at Fairfield University's Media Center today to watch a downlinked program on "Recovering from Terrorist Acts: Strategies for the Public Health Professional and Agency."

Sands Cleary of the Fairfield Health Department, who arranged for the downlink at the University, said the program, one in a series, focused on post-traumatic stress disorder and how to assist people in getting help. Fairfield University provided the downlink as a service to the community. Other sites for the program were Farmington and Groton.

For questions on the program, please call Sands Cleary at the Fairfield Health Department, (203) 256-3020.
