Mission

The Environmental Health Service mission is to provide public health sanitation inspections and education for installation public facilities; surveillance of drinking water quality, medically important arthropods, and climatic conditions; environmental related public health consultative services; field sanitation training for all Fort Sam Houston and Camp Bullis company-sized elements; distribution of medical threat information; hospital hazardous waste, regulated medical waste, and environmental compliance monitoring; and hospital radiation protection coordination.

Entomologists

Army entomologists plan and direct comprehensive programs on control of pests and animals affecting human health and the environment. They routinely conduct surveys to determine prevalence, distribution, relative abundance and significant habits of medically important insects and other animals, identify insects and other zoological specimens and evaluate resistance of insects and other pests to pesticides.
