Got 30 Minutes? Be a Lifesaver!
(... and be part of a Public Health Emergency Exercise!)

Arlington County and the City of Alexandria need you to volunteer to help test our ability to deliver medications to residents during a public health emergency. Please make plans to join us Saturday, November 8, 2008. Just walk into one of the five exercise sites between 9 a.m. and noon to pick up simulated medications for yourself, your family and any neighbors you would assist in the event of a real emergency.  Volunteering takes about 30 minutes.

Special Request

Be lined up and ready for processing at 9 a.m.

This exercise lets us collect important data to evaluate the medication delivery model and identify strategies for improvement. 

  • In order to do that we need as many volunteers as possible to be lined up at 9 a.m. ready to be processed through the sites. 
  • This will allow us to serve you better at the time of an emergency. 

Register in Advance!

  • Registration for the exercise is not required but is encouraged. The process takes less than a minute.
