Join us for a Mass Dispensing Exercise
Volunteers are needed for a Door to Door Dispensing Exercise centered in Germantown/Collierville neighborhoods surrounding Houston High School.
Thursday, December 12, 2013

8:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M.

Meeting location:
H.W. Cox, Jr. Community Center
440 West Powell Rd Collierville, TN

The goal of the exercise is to test the process of providing "medications" to homes in a certain area.
Depending on the nature and scope of the disaster, the public may not be able to come to a Point of Dispensing Clinic to receive their medications.
This is an innovative process to provide these medications in a rapid and efficient manner.

We will deliver the "medications" to approximately 2800 homes using many staff and volunteers.
Volunteers are needed primarily to deliver the "medications" either by walking door to door or driving in an assigned section.
Volunteers are also needed to assist with registration, administrative and other tasks.

We had a large group of volunteers cancel today, so we are in a bit of a pinch. Though, this is an opportunity to reach out to our volunteer partners and get to know each other. Thanks so much for all you do!
