In a public health emergency, such as a disease outbreak or bioterrorism, the residents of our communities will need access to medications as quickly as possible. The San Francisco Health Department is responsible with meeting this critical need by establishing locations throughout the city, called Point-of-Dispensing (POD) sites. The Department of Public Health cannot do this alone - they need our help!

This training, provided by the Dept. of Public Health's Emergency Preparedness & Response Branch, will teach you how to provide life-saving medication to the public.
