Due to current dry conditions, a county wide burn ban was put in place in early November. The Office of the Sheriff encouraged residents to cease outdoor burning until the ban is lifted.

Every three years, Franklin County’s Community Health Assessment Team (CHAT) conducts a “Community Health Assessment Survey” to evaluate the needs to improve the health of the communities that we serve. This includes access to care, quality of care, education, employment, income, family and social support, community safety, environmental quality, and health behaviors.
The Office of the Sheriff wants to encourage all county residents to complete this Community Health Assessment to tell us what your community needs are. This can be done online by visiting www.carilionclinic.org/community-health-outreach, calling 888-964-6620 or scanning the QR Code!
