Entitled, “Strategic National Stockpile Exercise”, this image was created by Division of State and Local Readiness field advisor (OPHPR/DSLR), Wes McDermott, MSPH. The photo depicts the “Eagle Pack” arriving at the primary Strategic National Stockpile warehouse, in the District of Columbia. This mock exercise depicted a shipment of simulated medical countermeasures, to be used in a public health emergency. Its arrival kicked off the largest regional mass dispensing exercise ever conducted in the Extended National Capitol Region. The scenario for the 2012 exercise, was an intentional release of anthrax spores by terrorists. This photo earned Wes the Second Place award in the 2012 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “Domestic People and Programs”.
