    Re: IS-26 Guide to Points of Distribution
    Valid point and could be confusing to someone unfamiliar, but in essence PODS “Points of Distribution” are a combination method and system used to distribute different items.
    The IS-26 course has a good Video, guide, and manual to explain what PODS are good for a broad overview.
    Here is a Public Health PowerPoint using PODS for “Vaccinations or Medications” probably similar to what we train for and PODS are also used for “emergency supplies such as food, blankets, and H2O.”
    Our Metro is also preparing and planning for VRC’s Volunteer Resource Centers as drive through vaccination clinics AKA POD sites … PODS locally here can be open or closed and also used in conjunction with The State of Missouri Faith Based Initiative planning.
    The previous post “The Problem with Closed PODs” explored using defined PODS and spoke of the preceived outcomes.
    Will make a Posterous post and list all sometime soon with examples for everyone to understanding how we in the KC metro are planning to use them.
    Do PODS need a more definitive and streamlined descriptive? Perhaps they do especially as the use evolves . . .
