The Tripcom MRC will be taking part in a Point of Distribution equipment exercise on May 9th at Concordia University. The event will begin at 9:00am and continue for a few hours.
The intention of this event is not to run a full exercise, but instead to familiarize volunteers and community members with all of the gear needed to establish a POD.
A Point of Distribution, or POD, is where the public goes to pick up emergency supplies following a disaster. The need for a POD is based on lack of infrastructure to support normal distribution of food, water, or other supplies. More information can be found here.
More information will be posted here when it becomes available.
