Points of Distribution (PODs), is a FEMA program for managing the orderly distribution of food, water, and other commodities like ice and tarps to the general public following a disaster.

In 2010, North Carolina Wing began an important partnership with the North Carolina Division of Emergency Management as a primary POD responder to county requests for POD support in the event of a disaster.  Early on, this partnership was put to the test during Hurricane Irene in 2011 and Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

North Carolina Wing is one of, if not the first wing in the nation developing these types of programs in partnership with North Carolina Emergency Management.  We can only make this work and help our fellow citizens with ample participation from all motivated members.
