Health Initiatives and Programs


In July 2016 all Meriden parks and recreation areas went tobacco free. 

You can read our Frequently Asked Questions page on the ordinance (Chapter 151) here, and it is also available en Español.




In addition, in August 2017 a new ordinance (Chapter 153) went into effect making all areas within 25 feet of operable windows, doors, and air intakes around municipal building tobacco free.

Our Frequently Asked Questions pages are here and here (en Español).

HISTORICAL WALKING MAP OF DOWNTOWN MERIDEN - Our office partnered with the Meriden Historical Society to create a map with points of interest in downtown Meriden. 



CAR SEAT INSPECTIONS AND INSTALLATIONS - The Meriden Health Department has been recognized as a fitting station by the Connecticut Department of Transportation. We have three Nationally Certified staff that can inspect and/or install car seats. An appointment can be made by calling Stephanie Denya @ 203-630-4223.

We also offer Child Passenger Installation classes throughout the year for parents and caregivers. These classes are taught by CCMC's Safe Kids CT but are taught at our Miller Street location. Through the Injury Prevention Grant, we are able to provide free car seats at these events. Like us on Facebook to receive notifications of upcoming classes.
