Sanford Coyote Sports Center Hosts Disaster Drill
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention will ship pallets from the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) to the Clay Union POD for a walk through drill open to the public. The local POD would be responsible to quickly deliver medication to the public in the case of an epidemic, terrorist attack or natural disaster.
Volunteer participants will be entered in a raffle each time they walk through the exercise. Prizes include a 42” HD Smart TV, $50 in Vermillion Bucks or Coyote Cash.
There are 32 PODs across the state of South Dakota where individuals can receive medication in times of a public health emergency. Clay and Union counties are combined into one POD that is responsible for over 20,000 residents. The Clay Union POD will be only one of three partaking in the drill this year.
