Dear campus community member,

As part of our campus’ ongoing effort to prepare for any kind of emergency, the University of Illinois Police Department is seeking volunteers for an upcoming point of distribution exercise from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Aug. 8 at State Farm Center.

A point of distribution exercise is designed to test the ability of our campus to receive, distribute and administer medication and other supplies during a public health emergency. As a participant, you will be asked to act as a recipient of medication. No actual medication will be administered. By attending the Aug. 8 exercise, you can help us to make sure that our processes are effective in distributing these supplies to a large number of people.

Participation in this exercise has been designated as an approved event. With prior supervisory approval and operations permitting, employees who are eligible for overtime may participate during work hours without loss of pay.

We ask that anyone with a last name beginning with letters A-L arrive at State Farm Center between 10 a.m. to noon. Those with last names starting with M-Z are asked to arrive between noon and 2 p.m. You must bring your i-card.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP any time before Aug. 1 using this form:

The University of Illinois Police Department works throughout the year to prepare our campus for any kind of emergency, and this exercise is an important part of our planning efforts. We thank you in advance for your participation and cooperation in ensuring that our campus community members are protected.
