LLIS Innovative Practice: Regional Distribution Site Exercise: Operation Basket Brigade, An Alternate Approach [open pdf - 279KB]
"The Lessons Learned Information Sharing (LLIS.gov) team identifies innovative practices from the whole community and documents these practices to promote whole community learning and improvement. The information from this innovative practice was obtained through the DuPage County Health Department's (DCHD's) Operation Basket Brigade After-Action Report and interview. The DCHD leveraged its annual grant-required Regional Distribution Site (RDS) exercise to collect, inventory, package, and distribute food donations during Thanksgiving in lieu of simulated Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) medical materiel. The exercise served as training for RDS staff and offered an example of how requirements and capabilities can be tested and expanded beyond the baseline exercise format."
