FREE Car Seat Inspections  

  • With so many different types of infant carriers and booster seats, it is no wonder parents often ask "Does that look right to you?"  Just when you think you have the seat properly installed, it is time to move on to a bigger one.  Officials estimate that 80% of car seats are used incorrectly.  Contact the Health Department at 414-425-9101 if you are interested in having your child's car seat checked.

Home Visits

  • Home visits are made to residents for a variety of reasons.  Families with a newborn are offered home visits and receive a letter describing our services.  These families are also offered visits when children are age appropriate for home safety assessments and developmental screenings.  A public health nurse will provide services upon a referral from hospitals, doctors, community agencies, or personal request.  Call 414-425-9101 to request a home visit.

Sharps Disposal

Wisconsin law requires proper disposal of sharps, needles, syringes, syringes with medication, lancets, and unused epinephrine used at home for people or pets.  Sharps must be collected in appropriate containers and taken to collection sites for safe disposal.

Where:  The Franklin Health Department is a Sharps Collection Station for Franklin residents only

Only Accepted Containers:

  1. Biohazard Containers/Red SHARPS containers are recommended to collect sharps.  The Franklin Health Department sells biohazard containers at cost as a service to the community.  We accept cash or check only.
  2. Thick-walled, plastic laundry detergent containers with a screw-top lid.  These containers must have a biohazard label applied before use.  Biohazard labels are available free for Franklin residents who use detergent containers to collect sharps.

In addition to our programs outlined above, a member of our staff is always available during business hours to answer questions and concerns on a variety of public health topics and programs including:
