Message from Health Officer

Dear Resident:

Our mission is to provide competent, professional and efficient public health and environmental services to the residents of our community. Through the delivery of state mandated "Public Health Practice Standards of Performance for Local Boards of Health in New Jersey" and the ordinances and policies of the Board of Health, we protect and promote the public's health by the use of health promotion and education, disease prevention, environmental enforcement and inspection activities.

The number one way to prevent the spread of colds and flu this season is by washing your hands or using hand sanitizer. Click here for a quick three minute video on how to wash your hands and use hand sanitizer.

Please take a moment to browse through the various pages in our website. If you have any questions or need information, please stop by the Health Department (located next to Ridge High School in Basking Ridge), email us, or give us a call! We are here to serve, protect and promote our community's health and safety.

Very truly yours,

Lucy A. Forgione, MS, HO, MCHES
