Health Department Plans Emergency Preparedness Exercise

Carroll County Health Department, along with many community partners, will conduct an exercise on Wed. May 15th, beginning at 9:00 a.m. This exercise will simulate an agent exposure, such as Anthrax in our county. If this were a true emergency, the health department would be responsible for the mass dispensing of medication to all of our county residents within 48 hours. We are conducting this exercise to give our employees and volunteers a feel of how this might work, and what are our weaknesses.

This will be a “drive-thru” exercise, practicing with volunteers driving the route, to the health department. The route begins at Caseys and  ends at the health department at 5 N. Ely with our nursing staff distributing our “pretend” medication.

Remember this is just an exercise. If you would like to volunteer to “drive-thru” our exercise, please contact the health dept. at 660-542-3247.

Edit:  This was a successful exercise. Thanks to all of our volunteers and partners who participated!
