The Point of Dispensing Exercise will involve a mock Anthrax release, triage, and treatment site.

The mock exercise is an opportunity for the Portage County Health Department and the EMA to test the effectiveness of Portage County’s disaster plan. The event also offers training for Kent State community health nursing students.
