Part One of a state-wide exercise focusing on the distribution of “simulated’ emergency medical supplies to Jackson Hole was completed Monday with the second part of the exercise still to come on Friday.  Public Health Emergency Response Coordinator Tammy Marshall says the Monday exercise successfully demonstrated the capabilities of a quick state-wide response to a potential emergency here.  The second part of the exercise involves the simulated distribution of the medications to the large groups of people who might need them in an emergency.  Marshall says a dispensing clinic will be set up at the high school and at both St. John’s Hospital and Urgent Care to give them experience working with a surge of patients.  Marshall says the exercise focuses on how to handle an event at a time the valley might find itself isolated.  Marshall explains that medical emergencies could range from a natural disaster like a major earthquake to a terrorist event or the outbreak of an epidemic.
