Montgomery County Gazette covered a full-scale exercise simulating the distribution of medication to 1 million people in 48 hours. The  Point of Dispensing (POD) exercise was developed and evaluated by CHHS’ Exercise and Training team. Held at Damascus High school, the POD exercise scenario was based on the public health emergency that would be caused by a terror attack that included a wide-scale distribution of anthrax by a crop dusting plane over the Montgomery County area.
