Federal Medical Stations (FMS)

Federal Medical Stations are designed to assist state and local communities in times of disaster. �An FMS can be set-up as a temporary non-acute medical care facility. �It contains a cache of medical supplies and equipment as well as beds to accommodate up to 250 people for three days.

The Division of the Strategic National�Stockpile deploys staff to assist in setup of the facility while the Department of Health and Human Services offers assistance in staffing the facility. �Federal Medical Stations were used during Hurricane Katrina to house evacuees requiring minor medical treatment. �They were also setup in Texas in expectation of Hurricane Dean in 2007, luckily, the site did not have to be used.
