Emergency supplies pick-up locations being established

The Kitsap County Department of Emergency Management wants to alert the public of the community point of distribution, or CPOD. A CPOD is where the public goes to pick up emergency supplies following a disaster. Local officials will establish a CPOD and announce the location through various media outlets. Community points of distribution are typically located in easily accessible areas, making it easy for the public to obtain supplies.

In the event of an emergency, supplies available at a CPOD include water, food, sanitary supplies, medicine, vaccines and other essential items.
