The Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) is a federal emergency response program managed
collaboratively by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the U.S. Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The SNS consists of pharmaceuticals and other
medical materiel that states can request in the event of a public health emergency, such
as pandemic influenza, or a man‐made or natural disaster.
The CDC and Massachusetts state SNS team will conduct this workshop, designed for
Chicopee city staff and volunteers. For additional information on the SNS, please visit
