Disease Control and Environmental Health
The Disease Control and Environmental Health (DCEH) Division includes programs that address environmental health needs in the city of Milwaukee as well as programs that focus on prevention of communicable disease and control of disease spread in Milwaukee. DCEH helps to assure healthy indoor and outdoor air, safe drinking water, responds with the Fire Department to Hazmat and other emergency incidents, and works to provide care for and control the spread of health threats like tuberculosis and sexually transmitted infections. DCEH monitors disease (such as influenza) occurrence world-wide and plans appropriately in order to help prevent breakouts on a local level.
