In the event of an incident that would require mass dispensing of emergency antibiotics and the implementation of the pharmaceutical component of our MMRS plan, pre-designated sites called Neighborhood Distribution Centers (NDC) would be set up to quickly distribute medications, vaccinations and information. NDC sites include locations such as schools, community centers, businesses, and health care facilities. Sedgwick County is prepared to quickly distribute emergency pharmaceuticals to a large number of people.
As with any emergency incident, residents should always tune in to local media for information and instructions. In the event that we should need to activate the Neighborhood Distribution Centers (NDC), the media will inform when you need to go to your NDC.
Sedgwick County is providing a Neighborhood Distribution Center Interactive Map to assist citizens in locating their designated Neighborhood Distribution Center in case of a biological attack, a Public Health emergency that will require medications. Citizens may enter their address or nearest street intersection to retrieve a map that will identify their nearest Neighborhood Distribution Center.
If you receive an "Address not found" error, use the "Locate" button for other options to navigate the map, or use the "Zoom" functions.
Print an "important information" card to help you remember what to bring to a distribution Center.

This model only works with the help of volunteers. The videos below are training sessions on some of the various roles an point of dispensing (POD) volunteer might be assigned.
