OPERATION DISTRIBUTION
Public Health Preparedness Full-Scale Exercise Held On June 23, 2015

The Hunterdon County Division of Public Health, County Prosecutor’s Office, and the County Office of Emergency Management in collaboration with Mercer County Department of Health, conducted a full-scale emergency preparedness exercise on June 23, 2015. “Operation Distribution” incorporated multiple venues, including the Emergency Operations Center and the Rt. 12 County Complex in Flemington (HazMat Building and Building 1), High Bridge Police Department, and North Hunterdon High School in Annandale. The exercise was designed to test the county’s ability to distribute the medications doxycycline and ciprofloxacin during a public health emergency, such as a deliberate release of tularemia. During the exercise’s twelve hour timespan, players tested their ability to carry out required tasks during the first twelve hours after a declared emergency. Core Public Health Capabilities tested included: On-scene security and protection, Interdiction/Disruption, Public Health & Medical Services, Emergency Public Information & Warning, Operational Coordination/Situation Assessment, & Operational Communications.
