This webinar series is designed to familiarize partners and stakeholders with critical concepts related to the pharmaceutical supply chain and the role of the Strategic National Stockpile.
Through a partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Center for Domestic Preparedness, the stockpile offers instructor-led courses to federal, state, local, tribal and territorial emergency responders and public health planners. Participants travel from as far as the South Pacific islands for readiness training and hands-on exercises. Travel, meals and boarding for attendees are paid for by FEMA.
State and local officials may request an in-person stockpile training at their location. Stockpile experts arrange for course dates and locations with requesting project area officials. The courses can be modified for a specific audience, and the stockpile offers continuing education credits for these courses.
Stockpile exercise staff are well versed in the use of the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program and provide technical expertise and material support to state, local, tribal and territorial public health partners by assisting with the design and conduct of exercises that validate all-hazards preparedness plans and training programs. In addition, exercise personnel are available to participate in state or local exercises by serving as controllers and players.
This group of experts also conducts exercises, drills and discussions to enhance and validate alternative emergency medical supply chain preparedness within the stockpile, in collaboration with other federal agencies, and by collaborating with private industry and medical supply chain organizations.
