Next time you are in a “big box” store, think about the incredible number of people it must take to bring the store’s goods and services right into your neighborhood. Hundreds and sometimes thousands of people make it all come together. These people are likely your neighbors, or at a minimum come into your community regularly to get their job done. Their employers have a vested interest in your area, and they want to keep everything running smoothly during an emergency. Recently, two nationally owned retailers came together with their local public health departments in a pilot project to ensure that their employees can receive life-saving medication during a public health emergency. As a result, the employees, business, and surrounding community will be better prepared if a disaster strikes.
