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. Captured in September 2017, in response to the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, this image depicted the interior of what had been the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. The center was converted to a FMS, and you can see here, rows and rows of beds, all which had been made ready to accept the influx of people affected by the storm, and in need of medical care.
