What is the Strategic National Stockpile?

"CDC's Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) has large quantities of medicine and medical supplies to protect the American public if there is a public health emergency (terrorist attack, flu outbreak, earthquake) severe enough to cause local supplies to run out. Once Federal and local authorities agree that the SNS is needed, medicines will be delivered to any state in the U.S. in time for them to be effective. Each state has plans to receive and distribute SNS medicine and medical supplies to local communities as quickly as possible." http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/stockpile/stockpile.htm

Once local and Federal authorities agree that the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) is needed, supplies will be deployed. Calhoun County has plans to receive and distribute SNS medicine and medical supplies to the community as quickly as possible.
The medicine in the SNS is FREE for everyone and the SNS has stockpiled enough medicine to protect people in several large cities at the same time. The Calhoun County Public Health Department (CCPHD) receives ongoing training about and regularly exercises SNS deployment.
The CCPHD thanks the following community partners for their participation in SNS planning:
·       Albion College
·       Kellogg Arena
·       Calhoun Area Career Center
·       Crossroads Church in Marshall
