The Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) responded to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack in New York City, by deploying medical countermeasures, equipment, and technical assistance within 7-hours of the federal decision to deploy. These attacks prompted federal legislation and directives, strengthening public health emergency readiness. Captured at an unidentified location, this image depicted two SNS first responders, in the process of conducting an inventory of medical supplies to be transported to the World Trade Tower, Ground Zero disaster site, from this SNS warehouse.
