Jefferson County Health Department Regional 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 an infectious disease outbreak or bioterrorism attack in the area. Please join us to help exercise our ability to get those life-saving medications to the people 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. The general public can volunteer to walk through our set, allowing them to see first hand how a POD functions. Registration will open at 12:30 pm. Just-In-Time Training and instructions will begin at 1:00 pm, with exercise play 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.
