LeanForward Updates and Expands Online Emergency Preparedness Training


January 15, 2009 - Bordentown, NJ – LeanForward announced that is has updated its online Dispensing Supplies from the Strategic National Stockpile emergency preparedness course to reflect recent changes made by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). These updates address changes the CDC has made to the composition, packaging and delivery of the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS).

Dispensing Supplies from the Strategic National Stockpile is an interactive computer-based training (CBT) course that enables state and local health departments to quickly and efficiently educate potential responders on how to mass dispense supplies from the SNS in the event of a public health emergency. This online course improves emergency preparedness by providing potential responders with a clear understanding of why the SNS was created, what is included in the SNS, how to efficiently dispense supplies from the SNS, how mass dispensing responses are managed and what may be expected of them during a mass dispensing response.

Dispensing Supplies from the Strategic National Stockpile is currently being used by the Florida Department of Health, the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services and over a dozen local health departments as part of their emergency preparedness plans as well as for just-in-time training in the event of a public health emergency.

LeanForward has also expanded Chesapeake (Virginia) Health Department’s mass dispensing training to include role specific training for all the major roles involved in Chesapeake’s mass dispensing plans. This training expands upon the training covered in Dispensing Supplies from the Strategic National Stockpile to provide potential responders with an overview of their specific roles and responsibilities. This course will enhance the Chesapeake Health Department’s emergency preparedness while also enabling it to respond more quickly in the event of an actual public health emergency.
