64th IAEM Annual Conference & EMEX

Richard Cheek, Deployed Resources’ Emergency Management Director, will be speaking at the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) Conference. The conference goes from October 14-19 in Savannah, Georgia, and he will speak at 8:45am on Wednesday, October 19th.

Richard will share his expertise on Commodity Points of Distribution (CPODs). CPODs are sites for the public to go to pick up life-sustaining supplies during a catastrophic event that disrupts normal supply chains. He will talk about how CPODs have been used in international and domestic incidents, where they should be located, how they are staffed and equipped, and how you can secure resources.

In his presentation, Richard will introduce the CPOD Calculator – our app that quickly calculates the quantities of human resources, logistics, and projected commodities, required forTYPE I, TYPE II, and TYPE III PODS. The CPOD Calculator app is available on Google Play and the App Store.
