If a large scale public health emergency requires mass administration of medicines and/or inoculations, Emergency Dispensing Sites have been designated by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health where such services will be provided. This enables systematic coordination with the Department of Homeland Security and the DPH and collaboration with the towns of Deerfield, Whately and Sunderland. Site drills have been conducted at Conway’s EDS facilities at least once a year for the past seven years, including the drive-through flu clinic in 2010. Locations may include the Conway Grammar School, Frontier High School in Deerfield or some other convenient location.
When an Emergency Dispensing Site is activated, detailed information will be communicated via Conway’s Emergency Alert System and this location on the Town’s web site (townofconway.com)
