criCRI (City Readiness Initiative) is a federally funded program established in 2004 to provide emergency medication to densely populated areas in the event of a large-scale bio terrorist attack, such as Anthrax. Other major cities have been testing on a limited basis with the use of postal employees, but Minneapolis was the first full-scale test in the nation with coordinated local law enforcement, the Minnnesota Department of Health, Emergency Management agencies, and the Postal Service. The goal of this test was to determine if emergency medicines could be distributed to the general population by postal employees within the first 48 hours of a national emergency. According to the Minnesota Department of Health, approximately 37,000 antibiotic bottles were delivered to residential addresses on Sunday morning June 6th starting at 5:30 AM. Letter carriers joined with local law enforcement to distribute mock medicine bottles and information into mailboxes in the 55101, 55102, 55411, and 55422 zones.
