Montgomery County to Conduct a Cities Readiness Initiative Full-Scale Exercise

 

Friday, March 28, 2014

10 a.m. - Noon

Damascus High School

25921 Ridge Rd., Damascus, MD

 

Local and State Agencies will be conducting a Full-Scale Exercise using the Cities Readiness Initiative plan to assess the ability of Montgomery County personnel from different departments and agencies to work together to conduct mass-dispensing of medications operations, implement a traffic control and security plan and assess the ability of mass dispensing staff to receive on-site training.

 

The Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) Cities Readiness Initiative (CRI) is a federally-funded program designed to enhance preparedness in the nation’s largest cities and metropolitan statistical areas where more than 50% of the U.S. population resides. Through CRI, State and large metropolitan public health departments have developed plans to respond to a large-scale bioterrorist event by dispensing antibiotics to the entire population identified within 48 hours.
