City needs help with mock antibiotic dispensing exercise

A mass antibiotic dispensing exercise is planned from 4-6 p.m. May 12. The Carson City Health and Human Services Department will do a mock dispensing exercise, and they are looking for help from the community to see how effective they are at moving people through quickly.

They are asking heads of household, or another family representative, to come to the Senior Center on Beverly Drive to fill out forms and pick up mock medicine. Although there won’t be real medicine, the exercise will let the department know what they need to work on in case of a real emergency.

The first 1,000 people who complete the necessary paperwork will receive a gift card as a thank you.
