Florida’s Strategic National Stockpile Program

Contact: Florida Health

The Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) is a federal program developed to provide large quantities of essential medical supplies to states and communities who have exhausted local or regional supplies during an emergency. Florida's SNS Program prepares (through planning, implementation, training, exercise, and evaluation) the state to receive and distribute medical countermeasures and to provide technical assistance to the counties in their preparations for mass dispensing campaigns. The goal of the SNS program is to minimize the loss of lives during a catastrophic public health emergency by providing needed medicines and medical supplies to 100% of the population within 48 hours.

Additional Resources 

Cities Readiness Initiative Resource Toolkit - This toolkit is designed to assist county health department planners and other community partners with Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) and medical countermeasure planning. The sharing of tools, resources, and successful practices can help counties establish, sustain, evaluate, and enhance local projects.
