Health Dept. needs volunteers July 19 for medication distribution exercise

Would you like to see public health emergency response in action and help your community? Volunteer to participate as an actor in *Capital Fortitude* a full-scale emergency exercise designed to evaluate the National Capital Region’s ability to dispense medication quickly in response to an anthrax attack.

Prince William Health District is calling for volunteers on *Friday, July 19, 2019 from 1 to 2:30 p.m*. to walk through a simulated medication dispensing site at Metz Middle School, 9950 Wellington Road in Manassas. Although no actual medications will be handed out, public healthstaff and volunteers will go through the same procedures and protocols that
they would use to dispense medications in a real disaster.

People of all ages, including parents with young children, people with disabilities, college students and faculty, scouts, community groups, seniors, members of faith-based communities, corporate employees and the public are encouraged to register in advance at


No special training or experience is needed. Children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult. Please allow for the full hour and a half to
participate in the exercise.

This is only an exercise; no actual disease-causing agents will be involved in any phase of this exercise. No actual medications or medical care will
be provided.
