Concord: Ash/Debris Cleanup Advisory


Last updated: April 24, 2018, 9:41 am

The large structure fire in Concord consisted primarily of construction materials (predominately wood). Residents should avoid direct contact and inhalation of ash/debris that was produced by the fire. Residents may use a mild soap and water to clean up ash/debris. To minimize dust generation, residents should consider lightly dampening ash/debris prior to commencing sweeping activities. Swept up ash/debris may be placed in a standard household trash receptacle. Any towels or cleaning materials should be rinsed in a sink that drains to a sanitation sewer. Residents should avoid washing or sweeping ash/debris into storm drains, as this will result in pollution accumulating in nearby creeks and rivers.

HIV/AIDS & STD Program


The HIV/AIDS & STD Program is dedicated to fostering the development, implementation, and coordination of programs to:

  • Reduce the transmission of HIV and STDs
  • Provide comprehensive services for people with HIV/AIDS
  • Enhance community awareness of HIV/AIDS to increase understanding and compassionate response

HIV/AIDS

We are committed to the development of accessible services which incorporate current knowledge of the AIDS epidemic, which are culturally and linguistically appropriate, and which meet the needs of those who are most vulnerable to negative health outcomes.

The HIV/AIDS Program offers care & support services for people with HIV/AIDS and education & prevention services for those at risk for HIV. We also offer HIV testing services via a mobile van at scheduled locations in the community.

A variety of care services are available for people with HIV or AIDS. In addition to nurse case management services for eligible individuals, we coordinate and offer referrals to a network of support services including: access to clinic-based medical social workers and HIV early intervention services; certification for enrollment in the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP); referrals to community-based services, including: medical case management; mental health and substance abuse services; help with accessing housing services; and other practical support such as food and transportation assistance, and other emergency assistance. Anonymous partner notification services as well as enhanced risk reduction services for HIV positive individuals are also available.

The HIV/AIDS Program also coordinates a network of HIV prevention services geared to help HIV-negative individuals remain negative. These services include targeted prevention outreach services, one-to-one prevention case management services, support groups and workshops, access to HIV testing, PrEP navigation, and wellness checks through our Data to Care Line List program. Services are designed to support individuals in making healthy choices to reduce the risk for transmission of HIV.

Some services coordinated by the program are provided by community-based organizations.

STDs

The STD program offers screening, diagnosis, and treatment services for STDs including syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia. Field investigation in the STD program involves locating and interviewing cases and contacts to diagnosed cases of syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea to ensure appropriate treatment.
