The reference should be removed from the association to Medical Countermeasures (MCM) since it is not about Medical Points of Dispensing (M POD), but is instead about the unrelated topic of Commodity Point of Distribution ( C POD). FEMA has a resource typing and a course for operation of a C POD, which is this IS-26 curriculum. However, other than they both involve delivery of support materials to the public following a disaster, there are few direct connections with the operation of a M POD.
