This weekend three area towns are getting together for a training event in case of a large scale anthrax exposure. The health departments from Bethel, Redding and Ridgefield are hosting the mass medication distribution event to see how the towns would respond to a statewide emergency scenario.
The town officials say between natural disasters like the massive storms this area has seen or an H1N1 outbreak, the Greater Danbury area has to be prepared.
The event on Saturday at Bethel Municipal Center takes place from 8am to 1:30pm. The towns are calling for volunteers, specifically doctors and nurses, for the educational training seminar.
