Health Alert Network (HAN) Messages

The HAN enables the four health departments in Stark County to issue consistent and timely messages to our public health partners.  The database is maintained by the HAN Coordinator at the Canton City Health Department.  It is constantly updated, with an entire update completed annually.  Currently, the Stark County HAN database contains over 2,100 agencies and over 3,100 individuals.  The contacts are grouped into over 50 types of public health partners such as hospitals, EMS, police, fire, physicians, day care providers, veterinarians, schools, etc.  HAN information is distributed to the appropriate partners via e-mail, fax, and/or telephone.  

It you are interested in adding your agency to our database or for information about HAN messages prior to 2012, please contact the HAN Coordinator at (330) 489-3327.
