Ringwood Health Department
The Health Department/Vital Statistics is located in the Borough Hall, 2nd Floor. Offices hours are Monday - Friday 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, excluding holidays. Effective 7/28 - The Health Department will be CLOSED for lunch 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (no appointments/inspections will be scheduled during this time).
The Health Department carries out the policies of the Board of Health and the NJ State Department of Health. The Health Officer is licensed by the State and is the Administrative Officer and Supervisor of the Health Department in both Ringwood and Wanaque. The Sanitarian enforces sanitary and public health laws. The Environmental Health Specialist inspects septic system repairs and new construction. The "face" of the Health Department is the Administrative Secretary who is also the Registrar of Vital Statistics.
Since 9/11, reviewing and maintaining the public health emergency management plans is an essential and combined effort of all Health Department staff. The Health Department is part of our community's first line of defense should an event occur. Therefore, we continually plan and practice our public responses to an emergency event in order to be prepared for the unexpected.
