2015 KOIN Award
The Kentucky Outreach and Information Network (KOIN) was established by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services/Department for Public Health in 2004. KOIN is a network of volunteers that are able to share information in emergencies to people who are deaf or hard of hearing, blind or visually impaired, have limited English proficiency, live in remote rural locations, or are elderly or disabled.
This year, the Madison County Health Department was selected and recognized for “Outstanding Emergency Preparedness Efforts in Support of KOIN”. Special thanks go to our partner organizations in Madison County that help our local KOIN be a success. Your support provides a way for vital information to be delivered to these groups in our county during an emergency.
Flu season has arrived! No one looks forward to the cough, body aches, fatigue and other side effects that are a result of contracting the flu. Preventive measures such as frequent handwashing and covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze can reduce your chance of getting the flu. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Madison County Health Department recommend the flu vaccine as your first step of protection.
Everyone 6 months of age and older is encouraged to get the flu vaccine. The following people are considered at greater risk for complications from the flu and are specifically urged to get the vaccine:
Flu vaccines are now available at both MCHD clinics. You may call for an appointment or walk in from 8:00-10:00 am each day.
Smart911 Now Available
Smart911 allows you to create a Safety Profile at www.smart911.com for your household that includes any information they want 9-1-1 and response teams to have in the event of an emergency. When you make an emergency call, your Safety Profile is automatically displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker, allowing them to send the right response teams to the right location with the right information. Responders can be aware of many details they would not have known previously, and now fire crews can arrive at a house fire knowing how many people live in the home and the location of bedrooms, EMS can be advised of allergies or specific medical conditions and police can have the photo of a missing child in seconds rather than minutes or hours.
Madison County Citizens can register for FREE because Madison County is participating in the Smart911 Program. Once you register your family's profile no matter where you travel your Family Profile with travel with you to any other 911 Centers that participate in the Smart911 Program. Everyone is encouraged to create their Safety Profile with Smart911 today to have their information immediately available to 9-1-1. Smart911 is private and secure, is only used for emergency responses, and only made available to the 9-1-1 system in the event of an emergency call.
