Clifton’s Emergency Preparedness Drill
Volunteers Needed

By on June 11, 2014

NEW JERSEY – The Clifton Health Department and Passaic County Department of Health are seeking volunteers to act as patients in a public health emergency drill on Saturday, June 14 from 9:30 AM — 1:00 PM at Clifton High School, 333 Colfax Avenue, Clifton. A POD is a temporary dispensing site where medication or vaccines can be given to large numbers of people in the event of a disease outbreak or bioterrorist attack.  The City of Clifton will be testing its ability to administer vaccine to residents in a short period of time.  In order to adequately test Clifton’s POD Plan, volunteers are needed to play the role of residents receiving vaccination at a community drive-through POD site.  Volunteers will be using their personal vehicles to navigate through the drill.  Minors must be accompanied by an adult.  All volunteers will receive lunch and a small gift for participating.  Registration is required.  To register or for more information, please contact Shaina Foster at 973-470-5758 or sfoster@cliftonnj.org. The Clifton Health Department is a contractual health agency for the Township of Little Falls.
