Dear Community Partner,

On September 1st (1:00 – 2:30 pm) Oneida County Health Department will be practicing how to dispense medications to hundreds of community members (pretend medication) in a Point of Distribution (POD) Exercise. We need at least 300 people to walk through this quick and easy practice exercise to help us test, train, and improve how we respond in a true emergency.  Each participating household that registers in advance will receive $10 in FREE coupons to purchase items at a Farmer’s Market held on site at MVCC or at another time at the Oneida County Public Market at Union Station.

We ask that you please assist us in recruiting 300 individuals representing one household to walk through this quick and easy exercise by posting and distributing this flyer to clients, friends, families, co-workers, etc.  Please see the attached flyer for location and registration details.

Thank you for your support!

We are again looking for volunteers. Same as last year, sign in people, take payments and help out any way needed. As we all know Bill Perrotti is the Spell-a-palooza champ and he will be there to defend his title this year. The event will be held on November 19th at Daniele’s on Seneca Turnpike. If you are interested in helping out please let  me know.
