News Release and Public Service Announcement Templates

In an effort to provide local county health departments with the tools they need, seasonal fill-in-the blank news releases and public service announcements are now available. Within each season, a variety of seasonal health and safety topics can be found, which can be used as either a template or guide.

Search for the spring topics below and if you're not finding what you're looking for or have a suggestion for a new topic, please email us at bmcc3@health.ny.gov.
