Strategic National Stockpile


When state, local, tribal, and territorial responders request federal assistance to support their response efforts, the stockpile ensures that the right medicines and supplies get to those who need them most during an emergency.

Anyone have any information, knowledge or experience with this? It states the department of health & human services has to approve its use. So it could help & if so why are we not using it?

Yes, there should be several stockpile locations. Among the items stocked are N95 and ventilators. I guess I had assumed we had already deployed the stockpile and depleted the contents.

It would be interesting to know the status of the stockpile.
