Jefferson County Health Department Point of Dispensing (POD) Exercise
Jefferson County Health Department has created plans to establish an emergency Point of Dispensing (POD) site to provide life-saving medications in the event of a bio-terrorism attack in the area. Please join us to help exercise our ability to get those life-saving medications to the poeple of Jefferson County.
The exercise will be held at Hillsboro Community Civic Center. Jefferson County Health Department, along with other Emergency Response personnel, will practice the set-up, dispensing, and take down of a full scale POD. General public can volunteer to walk through our set, allowing them to see first hand how a POD functions.
Set-up will begin at 1:30 pm, with general public starting at 2:00 pm. Exercise will be finished by 4:00 pm. Various work responsibilities and shifts are available, and just-in-time training will be provided to all.
