Communicable Disease Control Program

Communicable disease is defined as "illness due to a specific infectious agent or its toxic products that arises through transmission of that agent or its products from an infected person, animal, or reservoir to a susceptible host, either directly or indirectly through an intermediate plant or animal host, vector, or the inanimate environment." Communicable disease pathogens include bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and prions.

Communicable diseases can have a significant impact on the population. The surveillance and control of such diseases is an important part of protecting the public's health. The Communicable Disease program primarily deals with infectious diseases that are reportable by law.

The program also deals with other communicable diseases of public health significance, such as:

  • Influenza
  • Norovirus infection
  • Certain healthcare-associated infections.

For additional information please visit the NC Communicable Disease website.

The program responsibilities include:

  • Monitoring disease outbreaks
  • Monitoring reportable disease rates
  • Providing education to the public and medical community to prevent the spread of disease
  • Implementation of and enforcement of control measures to prevent the spread of infection.
  • Control and prevention of rabies and other diseases of animal origin that can affect humans.

Rabies is a vaccine preventable disease in humans, dogs, cats and ferrets as well as some domestic livestock. All mammals are susceptible to rabies and it is nearly always fatal. Rabies can be prevented in humans with timely and appropriate treatment. In North Carolina the disease most often occurs in wild animals especially skunks, raccoons, bats and foxes. Raccoon rabies is present in the raccoon population in virtually every North Carolina county. For additional information on Rabies please visit:

How can I apply for a burning permit?

Burning permits can be obtained online through the North Carolina Forestry Service. Please contact our Emergency Communications Center at 704-289-1591 and let them know you have obtained a burn permit and will be burning.

How can I find out what I am allowed to burn?

In some areas of Union County, open burning is allowed under the regulations of the North Carolina Division of Air Quality; however in some areas, open burning is not allowed. Municipalities where open burning is prohibited are as follows: Monroe, Wingate, Marshville, Indian Trail, Waxhaw and Stallings. Reasons why open burning is prohibited in the aforementioned municipalities range from trash collection being provided to the municipality having an ordinance against open burning.

About the Fire Marshal's Office

The Union County Fire Marshal’s Office has a primary responsibility of enforcing the North Carolina Fire Prevention Code that requires commercial occupancies be inspected on an arranged schedule depending on the occupancy type. In addition, the Fire Marshal’s Office handles safety concerns reported by the public and reviews building plans and fire protection equipment. During the building process, we work closely with our Building Code Enforcement Division. The Fire Marshal’s Office also conducts investigations into the origin and cause of fires. During investigations we may work with a number of different agencies that include: local Fire Departments, Sheriff’s Office, local Police Departments, North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. We are a partner in the Union County Safe Kids Coalition, which provides a variety of safety training and activities throughout the year.
