Captured in June, 2016, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) staff member, Livia Navon, this image depicts a full-scale exercise in-progress, implemented in order to test the deployment of the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS), which took place in Joliet, Illinois. Trucks were positioned to receive material for delivery to local health departments and hospitals.

This picture was an entry in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the categories of Programs-Domestic and People–Domestic.
Additional Information:
“CDC’s Strategic National Stockpile is the nation’s largest supply of potentially life-saving pharmaceuticals and medical supplies for use in a public health emergency severe enough to cause local supplies to run out. The stockpile ensures the right medicines and supplies are available when and where needed to save lives.”
