Medication Screening and Consent form
Since September 11, 2001, there have been presidential directives requiring government agencies to implement
an Incident Command system and train staff in All Hazards Preparedness. Emergency Response Planning has grown
from a focus on Bioterrorism to an All Hazards Emergency Plan. Response to pandemic influenza, terrorist agents,
nuclear disasters, as well as weather related incidents are addressed in the plan. All would present emergency
situations that would require a public health response.

Our Volunteer Coordinator is focusing on recruiting, training, and maintaining our current Emergency Preparedness
Volunteer Corp, currently at 50 volunteers. Our volunteers are from all walks of life and bring a lot of experience
to the table for us to utilize in our Points of Dispensing Sites (P.O.D.S.).
Our goal for the future is to have a volunteer corps of 300+ volunteers.
