2 Introduction John Pettitt 2 years With U.S. Border Patrol 21 Years With U.S. Marshals Service 10 years: SNS Security Operations

3 Strategic National Stockpile A national repository of life-saving pharmaceuticals and medical materiel that will be delivered to the site of a chemical or biological terrorism event, or natural or technological disasters, in order to reduce morbidity and mortality.

4 SNS Program History Y2K 911 Hurricane Katrina

5 SNS Initial Deployment SNS 12 Tractor-Trailors delayed 5 hours at the Holland Tunnel.

6 SNS Initial Deployment U.S. Marshals Called To Action...

7 SNS Program Components 12-hour Push Packages (Push- Pack) Managed Inventory (MI) Vaccine Management Cities Readiness Initiative (CRI) CHEMPACK Project Pandemic Influenza Response Federal Medical Stations (FMS) Technical Assistance

8 12-Hour Push Package Broad spectrum support 50 tons of materiel Arrives in 12 hours or less Pre-positioned in Environmentally controlled, secure facilities near major transportation hubs

9 Managed Inventory (MI) Provides specific material for known threats Maintained within the manufacturer s control Products are Federally owned Represents about 97% of the SNS assets

10 Vaccine Management Smallpox Vaccine with Supplies Anthrax Vaccine Botulism Antitoxin Whatever fixes the Plague...

11 Cities Readiness Initiative Enhance ability to provide prophylaxis to 100% of population within 48 Hours 30 counties in Texas Houston MSA Dallas MSA San Antonio MSA

12 Pandemic Influenza Response Antiviral Medications (Tamiflu / Relenza) pre-allocated and preplaced. Antiviral Meds deployed to all 50 states and territories to supplement local supplies. First Roll-out of Antiviral Meds completed April 2009.

13 Federal Medical Stations (FMS) Temporary Non-Acute Medical Care Facility Bed Units Deployed during hurricanes, and other environmental disasters.

14 CHEMPACK Project Forward placement of nerve agent antidotes (Atropine, Diazepam, Pralidoxime) Two type of containers: The EMS Container: Designed for emergency responders; contains mostly auto-injectors for rapid administration The Hospital Container: designed for hospital dispensing, contains mostly multi-dose vials, for precision dosing and long term care

15 Deployment Synopsis Event Occurs Local Medical Supplies Run Low SNS Requested By The Governor SNS Deployed With USMS SNS Arrives At The RSS Warehouse SNS Cache Broken-Down Onto Pallets Pallets Sent to PODs Medication Dispensed To Public At PODs

16 SNS Planning Local Law Enforcement and the Strategic National Stockpile (Planning and Deployment)

17 What is involved in SNS Security planning??? Building Relationships Initial Planning Why are we planning Security & Vulnerability Assessments of PODs Written Security Plans for PODs Review & Refine Plans Exercise

18 Building Relationships When proper relationships are developed, plans are completed and communities are prepared for the SNS.

19 Who is involved in SNS Security planning??? Public Health Law Enforcement

20 Security & Vulnerability Assessments The local SNS coordinator cannot fully certify a POD until local law enforcement officials have a completed a security / vulnerability assessment, and given it a favorable evaluation.

21 POD Security Plans The Local SNS coordinator cannot complete the POD plan without the completed written security plan.

22 Shuttle Disaster Recovery Why are we planning?

23 Why are we planning?

24 Why are we planning?

25 Why are we planning?

26 Why are we planning?

27 Why are we planning?

28 What it is... Assessment Template: What it is What it is not A general overview of security needs, and the recommended personnel or equipment to meet those needs. What it is not... A Site Specific Security Plan with the necessary maps, diagrams and narratives to provide a comprehensive understanding of security at a specific POD.

29 POD Security Plans POD Security Plans are an integral part of the POD Plan. The Security Plan can only be approved by a certified peace officer.

30 Site Specific POD Plans: What s Involved??? Assessment Template Personnel Contact Information Maps Photos Diagrams Narratives

31 Contact Information "SITE NAME A" POD Location that will dispense prophylaxis and/or provide immunizations MIPS Identity The pre-identified MIPS County County City Physical Address Security Support Agencies & Contacts Agency: General Phone: Contact Name: Contact Title: Work Phone: Cell Phone: Other: Agency: General Phone: Backup Contact Name: Contact Title: Work Phone: Cell Phone: Other: It is imperative public health work with law enforcement when completing the assessments and written security plans throughout this template. Please keep in mind, this document includes site specific information CDC has identified as a major component in a security plan. Any additional information above and beyond what is included in this template may be stored at the local public health and law enforcement agency or may be copied and pasted in this document.

38 Diagrams POD Interior

39 Narratives Security Posts Any High School Security Plan Security Posts The interior of the POD site requires 10 security personnel per 12 hour shift. Two officers will be assigned to the public entrance at the North hallway. Four officers will be assigned to the commons area (POD dispensing stations). One officer will be assigned to the exit point, which serves as the staff entrance. Two officers will serve as rovers. The loading dock for receiving supplies is located at the staff entrance. In the event that safety becomes an issue for the POD workers, a rally point has been identified at the middle school. Secured access to the middle school will be available 24/7.

40 Narratives Communications Plan ABC High School Security Communications Plan Each security lead shall have a County 800 Mhz handheld radio assigned to them. Specific channels shall be determined prior to the POD site becoming operational. There are 18 UHF handheld radios owned by the school district that will be available for use by the security staff. There is a repeater onsite that will allow communication between all designated interior and exterior security personnel.

41 How involved does a POD security plan need to be?? OR

42 Review and Refine The Plan Plans should be reviewed and refined (if needed) annually.

43 Exercise The Plan Plans Must Be Exercised!!!

44 Perceived Difficulties Events are not static like a written plan. We do not have the manpower to provide the number of officers required. I (High Ranking LEO) do not have the time to attend various meetings or exercises, or to write these plans.

45 The Nuts and Bolts of Law Enforcement Involvement in the SNS Building relationships and being part of the planning process. Providing a comprehensive site specific security plan for SNS PODs.

46 Final Thoughts The SNS Coordinator needs the help of Law Enforcement.

47 Final Thoughts In the event of national emergency (terrorist event or natural disaster) the Strategic National Stockpile will likely be deployed. SNS is coming!!!

48 Final Thoughts This page left intentionally blank so I could make an even 50 slides.
