Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Strengthening public health preparedness capabilities and readiness at the state and local level is a critical component in the broader national public health emergency preparedness and response framework. The Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) helps prepare state, local, tribal, and territorial responders to react effectively during an emergency when stockpile items are deployed. This preparation is accomplished by providing extensive training, technical assistance opportunities, and guidance to these partners on how to receive and make effective use of products from the stockpile and on developing and exercising their preparedness plans.

Stockpile exercise staff are well versed in the use of the
Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program and provide technical expertise and 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, the team is available to participate in state or local exercises by serving as controllers and players. Learn more about how stockpile experts assist in state exercises:

This team 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.
