In 2017, the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) simultaneously responded to not one, but three consecutive hurricanes, and at the direction of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), rapidly deployed expert personnel, Federal Medical Stations (FMS), and other supplies to the affected areas. The first FMS and staff arrived in Puerto Rico within 48-hours of receiving orders from HHS. Six FMS were shipped to Puerto Rico. Four were set up in the cities of Manati, Bayamón, Ponce, and Arecibo. Here, SNS staff unloaded FMS supplies at an airport in Puerto Rico, which would then be delivered to an established FMS. The stockpile had 115-personnel engaged in the response for Hurricane Maria, including strike team members, and supply chain experts deployed to Puerto Rico, and responders based at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) headquarters.
