Orange County Health Care Agency Point of Dispensing Emergency Preparedness Event at The Great Park in Irvine California Thursday October 18 2018.
This is Free Event for Community Members.
The OC Health Care Agency (HCA) Point of Dispensing (POD) Emergency Preparedness Event is at 4:00pm to 6:00pm at The Great Park in Irvine.
Attend the multi-city Point of Dispensing (POD) event and help cities and OC Health Care Agency exercise health emergency preparedness plans.
In a real emergency, PODs can save lives by getting needed medication and supplies to our community quickly and efficiently.
If a widespread disease or other emergency were to occur, it may be necessary for local health departments to activate PODs to distribute large amounts of vaccinations, antibiotics, and other medicines to a large number of people.
The Great Park POD exercise will offer both a walk-up option and a drive-thru option.
During the event, participants will be directed through the exercise by local police and fire authorities and will be asked to complete a brief intake form, proceed to a nurse or nursing student who will distribute exercise materials, then be directed through the exit station.
The exercise will help your community prepare for general health emergencies, and is a partnership of several local entities, including the Orange County Health Care Agency, Medical Reserve Corps and the cities of Aliso Viejo, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Laguna Niguel, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo and San Clemente.
