Area actors have a chance a shine.
The Prince William Health District is seeking volunteers for its Capital Fortitude Exercise.
Set for 1 to 2:30 p.m. on July 19, the event is taking place at Metz Middle School, 9950 Wellington Road in Manassas.
It aims to determine if the region is able to quickly provide medication to the public in case of an Anthrax attack, according to a release from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH).
Anthrax is a disease that’s rare in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. It can affect those who come into contact with animals that have the illness.
During the exercise, volunteers and health officials will run through the emergency procedure. No medication will be distributed.
Community members interested in participating may sign up to volunteer on eventbrite.
