ServNY - New York State's Volunteer Program
ServNY is a registry of health care and mental health professionals who wish to volunteer during an emergency or major disaster. Registering simply tells us that you are open to the idea of volunteering in case of an emergency. It does not guarantee that you will be called upon, nor does it mean that you must participate if called.

Your role as a volunteer will help ensure that people affected by a disaster will receive the public health and medical care they need.

Safe Sleep for Your Baby
Each year in New York State, babies die from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and accidents during sleep. Take care of your baby by following these simple steps:

* Place your baby on his or her back to sleep, for naps and at night.
* Use a safety-approved crib with a firm mattress covered by a fitted sheet.
* Make sure blankets do not cover your baby's head. Use sleep clothing, such as a one-piece sleeper, instead of a blanket.
* Remove pillows, quilts, sheepskins, bumpers, stuffed toys, and loose bedding from your baby's sleep area.
* Your baby is safest sleeping in a crib or bassinet near your bed. Your baby should not sleep in a bed or on a couch or armchair with adults or other children.
* Don't let your baby get too hot from wearing too many clothes or covers.
* Make sure no one smokes in your home or around your baby.
* Try using a pacifier when placing your infant to sleep but don't force the baby to take it. When breastfeeding, wait one month or until your baby has learned to breastfeed before trying a pacifier. Never prop a bottle.
* Don't forget Tummy Time when your baby is awake and is being watched.
* Tell everyone who cares for your baby about these important safety tips!

Children With Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Program
The Children with Special Health Care Needs Program seeks to improve the system of care for children with special health care needs from birth to 21 years of age and their families. Children served by the CSHCN Program have an illness or condition for which they need extra health care and support services. These children might have a serious or long-lasting:

Physical condition,
Intellectual or developmental disability, and/or
Behavioral or emotional condition.

Families of CSHCN are helped by giving them information on health insurance and connecting them with health care providers. We also work with families to help them meet the medical and non-medical needs of their children.

In Fulton County preschool children with a disability are provided with casemanagement services that assists parents with the transition from Early Intervention to school based services, and assists parents in meeting the special health and educational needs of their children.

For more information, please call 736-5720.
