Add event to calendar

Warren County Public Health needs your help. On March 12th, 2015 from 4:00-6:00pm at the Queensbury Community Center, which is located on Bay Road in Queensbury, Warren County Public Health will be conducting an Emergency Preparedness Exercise as required by New York State Department of Health.

The purpose of the exercise is to test Public Health’s capacity to conduct a Medical Counter Measures (MCM) Point of Dispensing campaign during a large scale disease outbreak. By conducting a full scale exercise, Public Health will be able to activate and evaluate most of the components if its’ MCM Plan, including the ability to quickly and accurately dispense medication at a mass clinic.

Our problem? We need 500 people to show up to the exercise to go through the dispensing process. The reason for the large number is because in a real event it is estimated in the Queensbury area Warren County Public Health would have to process approximately 260 people an hour for 48 hours to meet the needs of the public. Our exercise is going to last for two hours as required to give us a snapshot of our capabilities.

If you are interested in helping Public Health please see the attached flyer for exercise details and how to preregister for the exercise. If you are not interested in participating, but know of a group that might be interested please feel free to share the flyer and information with them.

If you have any questions or would like copies of the flyer please feel free to get in touch with me. Thank you.

Sincerely,
