Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (2018). Strategic National Stockpile.
In the event of a public health emergency so severe that local supplies are taxed, the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) can be activated to ensure medicine and supplies get to those who need it most. This website includes information on the history of the SNS; sustaining the SNS; partnerships; products included in the 12-hour push packs and managed inventory; training and exercises; and examples of the SNS in action.
