Turner County officials practice emergency disease preparedness

ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

The department of public health and law enforcement in Turner County teamed up to practice an emergency medical response.

The Turner County jail is one place folks can go in south Georgia if a pandemic broke out. Members of the community who showed up got something in return as well.

"Today we're just doing flu shots but if we had an actual disease outbreak or a flu pandemic or something like that, we would be dispensing actual medicines that came from the strategic national stockpile," said Department of Public Health Emergency Preparedness Director Karen Craft.

The Department of Public Health holds these events once a year.
