Additional Information:
Stockpile Operations is a five-day course designed to train federal, state, local, territorial and tribal officials, on how to best plan and prepare for a public health emergency, and how to use, and manage stockpiled medicines and supplies, in response to an incident like a terrorist attack, infectious disease outbreak, or a natural disaster. The course includes lessons on understanding the stockpile formulary, developing a response plan, and selecting receipt, stage and store sites, to name only a few topics. For 2 days, students are led from the classroom to the warehouse, for hands-on activities related to receiving stockpile products, space planning, cold-chain management, and Federal Medical Station (FMS) strategies.
