Point of Distribution (POD) Training
NC CERT will be providing training on the POD system used for distribution of emergency food and supplies in the event of a community disaster disrupting the normal supply chain. This is a valuable service that, if trained, our members could be used to organize and staff POD centers in Caldwell County.
The training is on Saturday, February 18, 12:00-5:00, at the Caldwell County Health and Human Services Building, 2345 Morganton Blvd, Lenoir, NC.
Registration is on the state TERMS site.
If you are not already a registered TERMS user, you will need to sign in here before you can register for a class. The link to TERMS registration is on the upper right of the page.
The POD class has a prerequisite of the online POD class and test. It is interesting and worth the time. Here is a link to the IS-26 class.
This video is a short overview of the POD system.
