this is a drill and you will be receiving candy

Today at work, one of our hospitals performed a surprise anthrax exposure drill. I saw a flier entitled "this is a drill and you will be receiving candy" that explained the event. Two thousand bags of candy were distributed in lieu of antibiotics. While I personally feel that anthrax is one of the less likely agents of destruction that could affect our facility, it is certainly good for hospitals to prepare for all sorts of health disasters, and the use of candy was a great way to encourage participation.
