LLIS Best Practice -- Strategic National Stockpile Distribution Planning: Selecting Facilities for Use as Dispensing Sites   [open pdf - 81KB]

"The selection of SNS [Strategic National Stockpile] dispensing sites is principally the responsibility of local jurisdictions. Prior to an incident, local SNS planners will need to determine the types of facilities that are best suited for use as dispensing sites and identify specific sites. This planning process should include assessing the location of facilities, population density of areas being served, physical characteristics of the sites, and in-house facility support. Using this information, local planners should calculate an estimated throughput for each site (i.e., the number of patients the site can treat per hour). Selecting effective dispensing sites and maximizing throughput of the sites is vital to ensuring that dispensing operations are as effective and efficient as possible."
