The Health Department is always available to respond to public health emergencies. You can call us anytime at (914) 813-5000. We respond to public health concerns such as potential rabies exposure, foodborne illnesses, sewage, chemical or oil spills, public drinking water and bathing beach water quality and preventing the spread of infectious diseases. After hours, we will return those calls that we consider to be public health emergencies. Other calls will be responded to the next business day.

Lack of heat and water complaints are handled by the local building departments. Check this list of Westchester's municipal building departments to get the correct phone number. 

After hours, the Health Department responds to public health emergencies such as sewage spills, chemical or oil spills, encounters with potentially rabid animals, lack of heat, foodborne disease outbreaks and infectious disease concerns. Each evening a Health Department staff member and a physician respond to emergencies called in to the main Health Department number. A taped message gives examples of public health emergencies and pertinent phone numbers after hours. If you would like to make a complaint, do not use the comment form. Instead, please call us at (914) 813-5000 to ensure a timely response. You may send comments and suggestions by e-mail.
