Overview of Community Points of Distribution

674
-1

Published on

Speaker:  Chris Utzinger, Emergency Logistics Program Manager, Washington State Emergency
Management Division
This presentation provides insight and guidance for local distribution of resources using Community
Points of Distribution (CPODS). The target audience for this session is volunteer organizations
interested in providing distribution assistance and emergency managers that need help getting CPOD
planning started in their jurisdictions. The session is based upon the IS-26 Guide to Points of
Distribution course provided by FEMA‟s Independent Study program and includes an overview of
CPOD layouts, staffing, operations, and public interactions. A sample CPOD kit is presented
highlighting needed personal protective gear and other equipment. The Adopt-A-Pod program, wherein
jurisdictions work with volunteer groups to staff and manage CPODs, is also highlighted. Audience
interest and understanding is enhanced by a hands-on sand table exercise where participants design their
own CPOD layout. Audience participation is highly encouraged, especially with attendees that have
dealt with distribution issues in previous events and can provide case studies for discussion.
