It will take some time to rebuild our staffing and capacity to provide service. We are asking for your understanding, please be patient as we are working on the most urgent public health needs first. Please be assured that on behalf of our colleagues, co-workers and friends from Environmental Health Services, we will get to you, we will answer your questions and we will provided the high level of service that you have grown to expect.
In recent days, there has been an overwhelming outpouring of support from you our customers and the public at large for those affected by this tragedy. In this time of need, your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated and provide tremendous support to us all and for that, we are truly grateful.
