Character Background Sheet: Local Health Official

Character Background Sheet

Local Health Official

You are a Health Advisor for the Ruralville Health Department. Although you have more than 10 years of experience in the health field, this is the first time you have encountered a situation involving a hazardous waste site.

Your purpose at the community meeting is to learn as much as possible about any potential health effects that could result, now or in the future, from contamination at the site and from efforts to clean it up. You need this information to be able to accurately advise townspeople of any health-related dangers and how to avoid them.
