Public Health Emergency Dispensing Exercise

On June 16, 2017, El Paso County Public Health is participating in a full-scale, statewide Public Health Emergency Response Event to test the community’s response procedures during a health crisis. 

About 200 volunteers are needed to walk through a mock clinic to test Public Health’s emergency dispensing procedures. El Paso County Public Health invites the community to participate on Friday, June 16 from noon – 2 p.m. at Rampart High School, 8250 Lexington Drive, Colorado Springs. This may include: filling out intake forms, consulting with public health staff, or receiving “medicine.”

Volunteers are important because they will help El Paso County’s response system practice their procedures, and allow people to learn more about what they, their family or organization would do during a public health emergency.

To enhance efficiency at the point of dispensing,  you may fill out and print the head of household form and bring it with you. When filling out the form, please do not use your real information.

No registration is required. Contact Janel McNair, Emergency Preparedness and Response Coordinator at El Paso County Public Health at (719) 578-3165 or [email protected] for more information.
