​​Strategic National Stockpile


Strengthening public health preparednes​s capabilities and readiness at the state and local level is a critical component in the broader national public health emergency preparedness and response framework. The Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) helps prepare state, local, tribal, and territorial responders to react effectively during an emergency when stockpile items are deployed. This preparation is accomplished by providing extensive training, technical assistance opportunities, and guidance to these partners on how to receive and make effective use of products from the stockpile and on developing and exercising​ their preparedness plans.​
