Volunteer

 

In the event of a bioterrorist attack, pandemic, or other threat to public health that requires dispensing medication to the entire community, volunteers will be critical.

As a volunteer, you will receive medication for yourself and your family first, ahead of the general public.

After ensuring you and your family are safe, you will help your neighbors get their medicine from a familiar location, such as a local school. These sites are called “points of dispensing” – or PODs.
