Captured inside a Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) warehouse, this image depicts a member of the Stockpile Logistics Team assembling an Ebola kit, which contained personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by emergency responders when Ebola patients received treatment in the United States. Here, the team member was reading a hard copy checklist as he gathered items that would complete the assembled kits.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s stockpile personnel assembled PPE kits with product from the SNS. Each PPE kit can assist a U.S. hospital-based clinical team member, caring for one Ebola patient, for up to 5 days. For more on the Strategic National Stockpile, please visit the link below.
