Health & Environmental Control Department
One of only four cities in the state of California with its own health department, Vernon is focused on protecting the environment and ensuring the health and safety of its residents, workers, visitors and neighboring communities. The Vernon Health & Environmental Control Department (HECD) provides comprehensive and efficient services to accomplish this goal, tailoring its operations to regulate and meet the needs of the city's large industrial sector.
HECD provides Vernon businesses and residents multiple programs to ensure that they are operating as required by local and State regulations. In addition, we also offer numerous programs that oversee the basic needs of the community as a whole. If you have trouble finding your program, please contact our office directly.
