Peas in a Pod Exercise

April 24th, 2012, Boulder County Public Health, BCMRC and hospital staff from Boulder County Health and Medical Response (HAMR) group worked to organize the county’s medical supplies cache into ‘pods’ so that we now have all the supplies needed for each ward or ‘pod’ at an Alternative Care Site (ACS) in one self-contained unit. A crew from the Boulder County Jail assisted with emptying and reloading the supply trailers. The trailers also contain supplies that could be used to assist access and functional needs clients at an evacuation site or general population shelter.
