Welcome to North Shore Health Department North Shore Health Department Highlights for 8/13/2019 Did You Know? The North Shore Health Department participates in a variety of community events throughout the summer including: National Night Out, Safety Days, Farmers’ Markets, Car Seat events, Bayside’s My Night in Blue event and many more. Community events build cohesion and resiliency among residents, businesses, government and community groups to make communities and neighborhoods safe and free of crime and violence. Community cohesion is the coming together of people with a shared vision and sense of belonging in which the diversity of people’s backgrounds and circumstances are valued and appreciated. Community resilience is the sustained ability of a community to utilize available resources to respond to, withstand and recover from adverse situations. Both community cohesion and resiliency are important elements of a safe and healthy community and are fostered through fun events and activities involving the whole community. Information about these and other events can be found on the NSHD website. Additionally, links to other information such as the CPSC’s (US Consumer and Product Safety Commission) website (https://www.cpsc.gov/recalls/) that provides information regarding recalls on products that have been linked to injuries and death.
