  • The CDC’s Strategic National Stockpile is a depository of medicines, antidotes, medical supplies, and medical equipment necessary for states and communities to counter the effects of biological pathogens and chemical and nerve agents. It is ready for deployment and will arrive within 12 hours of the decision to release it. The first part of the SNS is the 12-Hour Push Pack. It contains 50 tons of medical materiel. It consumes 5,000 square feet of storage space, and fits in a jumbo jet, or in 7 or 8 tractor trailers. It will be delivered to a state’s predetermined RSS (Receive, Store, Stage) site. The second part of the SNS is Managed Inventory. Managed Inventory contains larger quantities of medical materiel and is directly shipped from vendors to specified sites.
