This full-scale emergency preparedness exercise will test the strength and completeness of County and City plans during a simulated Anthrax attack.
Includes orientation before the exercise, and free lunch during the debrief at the end of the exercise.
Pre-registered participants will drive their cars through the site as simulated medications are dispensed. We anticipate each driver will make several trips through the dispensing lines in order to simulate crowds that would be anticipated in a real event.
Volunteers will be also receive a gas gift card in thanks for their participation.
