Cities Readiness Initiative (CRI)

The CRI Program

The Cities Readiness Initiative (CRI) is a federally funded program designed to increase bioterrorism preparedness in the nation's larger metropolitan areas. Oakland County is one of seven participating cities/counties in Michigan, and one of 72 participating cities/counties in the country. The goal of the CRI program is to rapidly dispense Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) medications or supplies to the entire population within 48 hours. The decision to order SNS supplies may result from a terrorist attack, flu outbreak, or other disaster that is severe enough to cause local supplies to run out. Once Federal and local authorities agree that the SNS is needed, medications and supplies will be delivered to any state in the United States.
