Statewide MRC Meeting & Pan Flu POD Exercise

On March 6 and 7, 2008, MRC GEM board members Sherwin and Judee Levinson attended the Georgia Statewide MRC Meeting, hosted by Public Health District 6, in Augusta. The conference featured presentations on topics of interest, along with opportunities for networking and best practices sharing with representatives from other MRC units.

The following day, Sherwin and Judee volunteered as "survivors" and observers in the Burke County Pandemic Exercise held in Waynesboro. Burke County, which is a part of Public Health District 6, boasts the only annual disaster exercise in Georgia.
