Emergency Management seeks Penn's Grove POD site volunteers
This following is a public service announcement by Oxford Regional Emergency Management (OXREM):
Penns Grove Middle School, located at 301 S. Fifth Street, Oxford has been designated as a Point of Dispensing (POD) site in case of a disaster, which would mean dispensing medicine/antidotes to the community and surrounding areas.
POD sites are set up all over the county, state and nation. Dispensing medication to the 30,000 plus people of our community is a huge task. Volunteers are needed for all types of duties at the POD site including medical, security, logistics, etc.
A volunteer informational meeting will be held on Thursday, April 26 at 6 p.m. at Penn's Grove Middle School. All community members are welcome to attend.
This would be a great opportunity to give back to your community and help your neighbors in a time of need. If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering, please contact Janet Zeis, Volunteer Management Coordinator, Chester County Department of Emergency Services at 610 344-5014 or email@example.com.
